Abstract


The seeds of Brunfelsia uniflora contained 30.5% of oil. The oil was analysed and components were identified by infrared (IR), gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and chemical methods. Linoleic acid predominated (75.5%) followed by oleic (11.8%) and palmitic (7.25%) acids. Ricinoleic acid was present in small quantities (0.52%).

Keywords
