Current study aims to diagnosis some species from diatoms in Iraqi water by using silica skeleton in their bodies because these properties of silica helpe to classification, and depending on this method in classification because it best to differentiation the species , according to it diagnosis some species (Nit dissipata , Diploneis, syndra ulna, stephanodiscus astrea, Nitechia acuta, cocconeis pediculus .).the method using in preperation (culturing media ,chemical treatment , Baking treatment . In future studies we can depending on silica skeleton in classification and in nanotechnology studies
