In article are brought results of the research of cherry elaeagnus (Elaeagnus multiflora L.) fruits and leaves volatiles compounds by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry. In the leaves of cherry elaeagnus identified 40 substances and in fruits – 32 substances. In the volatile compounds of cherry elaeagnus fruits and leaves dominated fatty acids, hydrocarbons and squalene. The total content of fatty acids in cherry elaeagnus fruits is 424.7 mg / kg, of which 76% falls on palmitic acid. In a cherry elaeagnus leaves dominates linolenic acid (55% of fatty acids), which in cherry elaeagnus fruit not detected. Squalene content of 92.8 mg / kg and 36.9 mg / kg in cherry elaeagnus fruit and leaves, respectively.
