Abstract: 

Kelussia odoratissima Mozaff. is a plant belonging to the Apiaceae family which has got high nutrition and medicinal value and is extensively used for treatment several diseases. The objective of this research was determination of content and composition of fatty acids, total phenolic content and essential oil content on K. odoratissima seed. Extraction of total phenolics content carried out by Folin-Ciocalteu method and the absorbance at 750 nm was measured by spectrophotometer. Results showed that total phenolic content was 288.15 mg GAE/g DW in seed. Hydro distillation by Clevenger-type apparatus was used for the extraction of essential oil. 2.1% essential oil was obtained in the experiment. Moreover, extracting from the seeds was done using Soxhelet method, in addition to measuring fatty acids by GC. The results showed K. odoratissima seeds contain 25% oil. The major fatty acid present in seeds (75.35% of % total) was C18:1 including petroselininc acid (C18:1(n-12)) and oleic acid (C18:1(n-9)). Other fatty acids were including linoleic acid (19.14%), palmitic acid (6.65%), stearic acid (1.9%) and linolenic acid (.95%).
