Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract M. ciliatum seed oil, extracted with petroleum ether and hydrolysed with ethanolic KOH, yielded 91% fatty acids and 1% unsaponifiable matter. The solid fraction obtained after esterification with diazomethane contained stearic (5%), arachidic (75%) and behenic (20%) acids, and the liquid fraction contained myristic (4%), tetradecenoic (2%), palmitic (13%), hexadecenoic (4%), stearic (16%), oleic (28%), linoleic (24%), arachidic (5%) and behenic (3%) acids.
