In order to evaluate the effects of foliar application of methanol on some physiological characteristics of chickpea under drought stress, an experiment was conducted as a factorial based on completely randomized design with three replications in 2011 at the Research Center of Plant Sciences in Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. The first factor was different levels of methanol including, 0 (control), 20, 25, 30, 35 volumetric percentage (v/v), which were used as foliar applications at three times during growth season of chickpea, with 10 days intervals. Second factor was drought stress condition in two levels 25 and 100 percent of field capacity. Results showed that there was significant difference (P‌AWT IMAGE0.01) between methanol levels concentrations regarding to leaf protein content, proline content, total soluble sugar, H2O2 content, catalase, peroxidase and SOD enzyme activity. Spraying with 30% volume level significantly increasedleaf protein, proline and total soluble sugar content compared to control. Effects of drought and methanol were not significant on antioxidant enzyme activity, leaf protein content, total soluble sugar and H2O2 content but on the proline content was significant (P‌AWT IMAGE0.05).
