Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract The seed of the Mandara shrub, Jatropha euphorbeacea, contains about 32% oil. Hydraulic pressing of the kernel yields a water-white oil with the following characteristics: sapon. no. 203, I no. 106, acid no. 11.3, Hehner no. 96, acetyl no. 30.9, unsaponifiable 0.85%. Sapon., sepn. of the Pb soaps, fractional distn. of the Me esters, and analysis of the various fractions indicated the following fatty acid compn. for mandara oil: caproic 1.5, lauric 8.9, myristic 5.2, palmitic 4.3, stearic 1.9, palmitoleic 13.7, linolenic 8.0, linoleic 26.1, oleic 16.7, and ricinoleic 12.9%
