Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract The seeds and leaves of Gnetum gnemon (L.), a Gymnosperm, were examined for their fatty acid composition by gas-liquid chromatography, infrared, ultraviolet and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. They were found to contain cyclopropene fatty acids (CPFA) determined as silver nitrate derivatives of their esters. ‘Keropok’, a product prepared from seeds, was also examined for its CPFA content. The values (area%) for total CPFA were 51.62, 37.87 and 46.91% of the total fatty acids in the oil of seeds, leaves and keropok, respectively. The effect of normal cooking temperatures on the retention of CPFA in these materials was also investigated.
