For a fixed graph F, a graph G is F-saturated if it has no F as a subgraph, but does contain F after the addition of any new edge. The saturation number, sat(n, F), is the minimum number of edges of a graph in the set of all F-saturated graphs with order n. In this paper, we determine the saturation number sat(n,2P3 ∪ tP2) and characterize the extremal graphs for n ⩾ 6t + 8.
Key words: saturation number; saturated graph; linear forest
