Phytochemicals are bioactive compound obtained from the plants and are widely applied in the traditional herbal medicine. These herbal medicines are used by the local people to cure the various diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, thyroids, HIV etc. The present study deals with the phytochemical screening of Nigella Sativa. L. Seeds, which are commonly known as black cumin seeds, are remedy for everything except death. It may provide an ideal treatment for auto immune system and has antithyroid quality. Phytochemical screenings were performed by qualitative and quantitative analysis of various phytochemicals by using standard method of Harborne. Phytochemicals separation were also performed by using TLC and HPLC method. Phytochemicals present in seeds may be used in future for preparation of herbal drugs. Nano Synthesis of phytochemicals extract were performed by using silver nitrate, and silver nanoparticles were prepared Nanoparticles were characterized by U.V spectroscopic method, SEM analysis and EDX spectra.
