Maximum bioactive compounds (alkaloids, terpenoids, glycosides, flavonoids, saponins, carbohydrate, proteins and fixed oil) were detected in the extract of acetone, methanol, chloroform and water. High extraction was done by water solvent and low value was in acetone solvent. Seeds of Aconitum chasmanthum showed variety of therapeutic potential due to the presence of various phytochemical compounds, and may take for medicinal purposes after analyzing the seeds in terms of drug actions.
