The fatty acid composition of seed oil of Chrysophyllum albidum was determined by gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (GC-MS). The seed oil contained much important fatty acids with linoleic (26.21%) and palmitic (14.41%) acids being the most abundant unsaturated and saturated fatty acids, respectively. The total unsaturation for the oil was 67.61%. These results confirm that the oil of C. albidum is of industrial importance.
