- Tung tree (Vernicia fordii Hemsl.), a subtropical round-crowned deciduous tree, belongs to a species of the genus Vernicia in the spurge (Euphorbiaceae) family.
- Tung oil extracted from seeds is considered to be one of the high-value industrial oils, used widely in production of cloth, shoes, waterproofing masonry, clothing, paper, and biodiesel.
- With 80% α-eleostearic acid of tung oil, a high degree of unsaturation, tung oil is regarded as a conjugated drying oil.
- Following the development and maturation of tung tree seeds, the content of fatty acids gradually increases. The peak periods of fatty acid synthesis are during the middle of August and the middle of September in China.
