ANALYSIS OF FATTY ACID COMPOSITION AND PHYSICO-CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTIC OF NYCTANTHES ARBORTRISTIS AGED GREEN SEED AND RIPE SEED BY GAS LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY

Mohammad Mizanur Rahman, Mohammad Shahjahan.

Abstract
The fatty acid composition of oils extracted from two types (aged green seed and ripe seed) of seed of Nyctanthes arbortristis Linn were obtained by gas liquid chromatography. The aged green seed and ripe seed to each individually were successively extracted by light petroleum ether–n-hexane–chloroform (PHCL), which analyze for fatty acid composition. The major saturated and unsaturated fatty acids methyl ester (FAME) of aged green seed PHCL extract were determined palmitic acid (C16:0, 16.3109%), stearic acid (C18:0, 6.6109%) and oleic acid (C18:1, 44.3101%) eicosadienoic acid (C20:2, 13.5202%) respectively. On the other hand the saturated and unsaturated fatty acid of ripe seed PHCL revealed that contain mainly palmitic acid (C16:0, 17.3494%), stearic acid (C18:0, 19.3639%) and oleic acid (C18:1, 36.5009%), eicosadienoic acid (C20:2, 14.8814%) respectively.

Key words: Seuli, aged green seed, ripe seed, saturated fatty acid, unsaturated fatty acid, Nyctanthes arbortristis Linn
