Elemental concentrations of five different seed coats of fruit seeds were determined by using wavelength-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) technique. Basic aim of this study is to measure mass percentages of macro, micro and trace elements in samples. Besides, analyze results have been commented in terms of correlation between the same element types in seed coats of different fruits. Some interesting results have been obtained about element quality and quantity.
