    Abstract: Investigations were carried out on mango seed oil to analyze their suitability and extent of cross-linkage in alkyd resin synthesis. The oil was isolated from the seed kernel by soxhlet extraction method using n-hexane, characterized and used for bio-resin formulation. The oil yield, relative density, free fatty acid value, iodine value, and saponi... Show More
