Abstract:
The present study showed GC/MS analyses of the saponifiable matters of Avocado fruit and Sesame seed fixed oils, which obtained from Souss Argane Company. Avocado (Persa americana) fruit fixed oil contained saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids with percentages 8.87%, 44.61% and 6.40%, respectively. The major fatty acids were oleic acid methyl ester (43.61%). While, Sesame (Sesamum indicum) seed fixed oil contained saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids with percentages 23.05%, 33.65% and 39.79%, respectively.
