We have studied samples obtained from olive pits of different dimensions, determined the method for obtaining powder from olive pits, and also studied the best suitable time for collection. Crushed to a powder of powder and to particles of hard bones, they were placed in test tubes and filled with solvents. The solutions obtained by extraction with several solvents from the crushed powder of olive pits, collected in October 2021 in the Surakhani district of Baku, showed the best result. The resulting concentrates were studied and the optical density of the solutions was determined by UV spectroscopy; a method based on the Lambert–Bouguer–Beeroscopy law was applied.
