Iris postii Mouterde, belonging to family Iridaceae is distributed in Kurdistan region/Iraq. The present study aimed to analyze the content of 65 elements (major and minor elements) Ag, Al, As, Au, B, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Cu, Dy, Er, Eu, Fe, Ga, Gd, Ge, Hf, Hg, Ho, In, K, La, Li, Lu, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Nb, Nd, Ni, P, Pb, Pd, Pr, Pt, Rb, Re, S, Sb, Sc, Se, Sm, Sn, Sr, Ta, Tb, Te, Th, Ti, Tl, Tm, U, V, W, Y, Yb, Zn and Zr from roots and arial parts of Iris postii by using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES) techniques after microwave digestion and determination of 11 oxides SiO2, Fe2O3, CaO, MgO, Na2O, K2O, Cr2O3, K2O, TiO2, MnO, P2O5, SrO and BaO by ICP-AES for the first time. Micromesoporous catalyst was hydrothermally synthesized by Tetra propyl ammonium hydroxide (TPAOH), Silicon dioxide (SiO2) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH). Results show some elements, Iron (Fe), Barium (Ba), Manganese (Mn), Zinc (Zn), Strontium (Sr) and Boron (B) are present in the roots and aerial parts in a significant amount. Among them Fe has the highest concentration (340 ppm) and (1130 ppm) in the roots and aerial parts of Iris postii respectively, on the other hand, Ba (85.3 ppm, 28.8 ppm), Mn (57.4 ppm, 19.4 ppm), Zn (29.2 ppm, 25.7 ppm), Sr (27.7 ppm, 16.95 ppm) and B (26 ppm, 14 ppm) are essential elements of the roots and aerial parts respectively.
