The goal of the research was to study the fruit of Sambucus ebulus L. for the content of lipids and some biologically active compounds. Sums of neutral and polar lipids were obtained from the investigated object with various percentage yields. The basic classes of lipids were established in them and some of their physical-chemical constants were identified. Saturated, unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids were quantitatively and qualitatively identified in the sum of neutral lipids by using the gas-chromatographic method, with high percentage contents of some of them. Phospholipids were identified qualitatively and quantitatively in the sum of polar lipids. Based on the study, the presence of some other biologically active compounds, such as carotenoids and amino acids was identified in the given object. As the obtained results suggest the vegetable oil obtained from the studied object is rich in biologically active compounds, which gives the opportunity to use the oil in medical practice.
