Abstract: Stress condition can delay growth and development, reduce productivity, and, in extreme cases cause plant death. Salinity imposes detrimental effects on plant growth through low osmotic potential of soil solution and nutritional imbalance. As a consequence of these primary effects of salt stress, caused by its hyperosmotic effect, secondary stresses, such as oxidative damage. Increasing soil salinity levels strongly influence the essential lipids biosynthesis. In other hand, lipid peroxidation was synchronized with increased of the salinity level which had a relation with plants such as wheat, tomato and purslane was reported. Accumulation of phenolic acids is a well-known symptom of adverse salinity and the production of different classes of phenolic acids produced via the phenylpropanoid system is dependent on the nature of stress exposed to plants.
