The biological activity and the pharmaceutical properties of plants are strongly dependent on their structure.

The FT-IR spectra of saffron (commercial) have been obtained. The vibrational fundamentals from the IR spectrum, were analyzed  and assigned acoording to the available literature. In the present research work the genus saffron is selected because it is famous in wold as foods and also as medicine.
