Abstract

The neutral ester, free, and polar fatty acid fractions, obtained from soybean seeds harvested from field-grown plants exposed to S02 or 03, were analyzed in both qualitative and quantitative terms. Plant exposure to S02 or 03 produced seeds of lower oihprotein ratio, but no significant changes in any of the fatty acids were observed. It is suggested that the soybean pod protects the seed from the pollutant and that S02 or 03 exposure of plants within federal guidelines should not affect oil quality.
