Description

Title: Determination of Fatty acid components in the Oak forest (Quercus spp) of Khamza Mountain Oak forest of Sulaimani / Kurdistan region.


Abstract

In this study work, fatty acid composition which produced by oak tree fruits were deter mined as a fat contents in acorn, pericarp and cupules in the three oak species (Q.aegilops subsp Brantii, Q .libani and Q.infectoria).
The plant samples were collected in khamza mountain oak forest of Sulaimani/ Kurdistan region during October 2008. Exposed to air room temperature for air drying and ground to fine powered by electric blender then stored in plastic containers at 42 °C.
In the preliminary step fat detected from acorn, pericarp and cupules by “soxhlet” method and the various fatty acids (saturated and unsaturated) were separated and determined by GLC.
The amount of saturated fatty acids in the acorn of the Q. aegilops’ subsp branatii, Q. libani and Q. infectoria were more than %25 , %7 and %18 , while in the pericarp were more than %9 , %12 and %11 but in the cupules were more than %9 , %10 and %10 respectively .The amount of unsaturated fatty acids in the acorn of the Q. aegilops , subsp’ Branatii, Q. libani and Q. infectoria were more than %70 , %91 , and %79 , while in the pericarp were more than %87 , %84 and %81 but in the cupules were more than %87 , %88 , and %84 reseptively .
The most abundant fatty acids found in the acorn, per carp and cupules were oleic followed by Lenoleic, except the cupules of Q .infectoria, the most abundant fatty acid was linolenic followed by oleic.
