Fatty acids in petroleum-ether extracts prepared from the flower, stem, and leaf of Telekia speciosa (Schreb.) Baung. were studied by capillary gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The flower and leaf extracts were found to contain similar fatty acids, namely palmitic, linoleic, and oleic acids, whereas the stem extract contained only caproic acid.
