Abstract: To determine the suitability for use in paints, soaps and detergents etc., the fatty oil from Strychnos potatorum seed is separated. Seed oil obtained by extraction through petroleum ether has a sufficiently high (20.8%) unsaponifiable matter. Total fatty acids are found to be 60.4% with almost equal quantities of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. Spectroscopic studies indicate linoleic acid (31.94%) and linolenic acid (8.18%) among the total of fatty acids. Physico-chemical characteristics of the oil and presence of specific natural organic substances are also investigated.
