The Undaria pinnatifida collected in the waters of Dongbaek Island were grouped into young and adult ones and calcium and iron contents of each were analyzed by parts, i.e., separately for blade, stripe, and sporophyll by potassium permanganate titration method and spectrophotometric method respectively (O-phenanthrolin used). The results showed that the blades contain higher percentage of calcium than other parts both in young and adult seaweeds and that proportionately twice as much iron is contained in the blades than in the stripes.
