GCMS analysis showed twenty eight fatty acids, 12 n-octanoate, dodecanotic acid, n-hexadecanoic acid, n-heptaecenoate, tridecatrienoate acid methyl-2-tridecynote and essential elements were isolated from the shell of Cocos nucifera viz., along with calcium, cadmium, chromium, copper, iron, lead, potassium, magnesium, manganese, nickel and zinc. Present study revealed that accumulation of tetradeconic acid was higher among saturated fatty acids among metals magnesium and iron 593.06 ± 42.17,
