Fatty acid composition of pericarp and seed of Rhus coriaria L., grown wild from ten different regions of Turkey, was determined. Fatty acid analysis was carried out by gas chromatography (GC). The main fatty acids of pericarps were oleic (33.78-52.57%), palmitic (16.99-29.76%), linoleic (11.60- 21.91%) and linolenic (0.33-1.33%) acids. In addition, linoleic (49.35-60.57%), oleic (24.58-32.05%), palmitic (8.32-13.58%), stearic (1.57-3.03%) and linolenic (0.46-0.74%) acids were established as major fatty acids of sumach seeds.
