The article reflects a study on fatty acid composition among seed and leaf oils of pumpkin, walnut, almond, maize, sunflower as well as melon. According to the author, the study applied gas chromatography to determine fatty acid composition of the seed and leaf oils of almond, pumpkin, melon, walnut, sunflower, and maize. Furthermore, figures depicting results of the study is also offered.
