Abstract

Oil from the seeds of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) was extracted with n-hexane, and was evaluated for free fatty acid value, FFA (0.042%), acid value, AV (0.095mgKOH/g), ester value, EV (182.138mgKOH/g), saponification value, SV (182.233mgKOH/g), iodine value, IV (119.921mgI2/100g), peroxide value, PV (6.322mgO2/kg) and specific gravity, SG (0.915). The anti-microbial properties of the oil on different pathogenic organisms were evaluated.
