In this study, Avocado seed oil was extracted using sohxlet apparatus, n-hexane: chloroform (30:70) at 70°C for 3 h, characterized and the pharmacological potentials assessed. The percentage oil yield was 36.93%, brown in colour and remained liquid at room temperature. The acid, peroxide and iodine values were 7.86 mg/KOH/g, 42.11 meq/ Kg-1 and 33.21 mg/100 g respectively. The identified fatty acids included Dodecanoic acid (1.05%), tetradecanoic acid (0.86%), n-hexadecanoic acid (13.19… CONTINUE READING
