Phytochemical screening is an important step which principals to the isolation of some compounds. Concluded using different organic solvents such as ethanol, chloroform and acetone otherwise using aqueous extracts of leave of Ephedra (Ephedra altissima), The chemical constituents (Qualitative and Quantities analysis) all most presented in crude extracts of plant (Tannins, Saponins, Flavonoids, Cardiac glycosides and Alkaloids) formerly Steroids; Terpenoids and Anthraquinones not presented in some crude extracts were considered. Moreover, results proved that quantities analysis of ethanolic extract of leaves had significant amount of chemical compounds 87% moreover the aqueous crude extract were moderate 82% and the Chloroform 79% and acetone extracts 77% were lowliest.
