The chemical composition of the leaves and roots of the hybrid fodder dock Rumex K-1 (fam. Polygonaceae) introduced into cultivation in the environs of Almaty has been studied for the first time. It has been shown that the leaves and roots of the plant contain a considerable amount of such biologically active substances as lipids, vitamins, phenolic compounds, polysaccharides, and anthraquinones. The fatty acid compositions of the leaf and root lipids are given.
