Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract The component acids and glycerides of okra seed oil (iodine value 94.0, free fatty acid 0.1%, unsaponifiable matter 1.2%) from the Sudan have been investigated. The acids comprised palmitic 23.8%, stearic 7.4%, oleic 27.1% and linoleic 41.7% (wt.). The glycerides included about 40% of saturated-oleo-linoleins, 25% of triunsaturated glycerides (mainly oleodilinolein), 10% of saturated-dilinoleins and 23% of glycerides containing two saturated acid groups with either an oleic or a linoleic group. The oil is very closely similar in constitution to cottonseed oil and, providing the harvesting of the seed and its subsequent decortication present no insuperable difficulties, it should be completely suitable for all uses to which cottonseed oil is put.
