Aim: The existing study was conceded out to offer requisite detail of Phytochemical and Physicochemical parameters and radical scavenging activity of the plant Chenopodium album Linn. Materials and Method: In the present work, different extracts of Chenopodium album Linn (C.album) were prepared and tested for the presence of secondary metabolites and various physico-chemical parameters for the phytochemical analysis of plant. All polar extract were tested for the free radical scavenging activity. Results: The pharmacognostical results exposed the presence of flavonoids, tannins and alkaloids in the plant and significant physico-chemical values. Utmost free radical scavenging activity was found to be in butanol fraction and lowly in dichloromethane extract. Conclusion: It may be concluded that C. album Linn could be a source of therapeutic and natural scavenging agent.

Key words: Chenopodium album; Extractive values; Sulphated ash; Antioxidant activity.
