The Adiantum capillus veneris was screened for phyt ochemicals and metal content. The antioxidant activ ity was also determined by different methods. It was observ ed that it contains 8.3 % moisture, 11.44 % ethanol extractable matter and 24.00 % water extractable matter. The so xhlet extraction of Adiantum capillus veneris showe d the presence of phenolics and terpenoids (2.73 %), fats and waxes (0.20 %), alkaloids (0.53 %), quaternary nd Noxides (26.33 %) and fiber (67.23 %).
