Moringa Oliefera is considered one of the world’s most useful trees, as almost every part of the tree including the leaves could be used for food, medication, and industrial purpose. The research work is aimed to carry out phytochemical and proximate analysis on dry Moringa Oliefera leaves. The phytochemical screening conducted on n-hexane extracts of dry Moringa Oliefera leaves revealed the presence of some bioactive components such as alkaloid, phenol, glycosides saponins volatile oil and protein the amount of Alkaloids phlobatannins, flavonoids, glycoside and protein are high in the leaves. The leaves flavonoid and hydrolyzable are not detected in the leaves extract tannins concentrations are lower in the leaves extract and the amount of glycosides is high in the leave extract. The value obtained from the proximate analysis of dry Moringa Oliefera leaves are ash 3.55%, moisture 15.5% crude protein 17– 56%, crude lipid 1.9% crude fabric 3.6.44%, and total carbohydrate 64.48% respectively. The result shows that Moringa Oliefera has a very high carbohydrate percentage in the leaves. ...
