Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract The fatty acid composition of Hibiscus esculentus seed oil was determined by spectrophotometry and gas-liquid chromatography. The percentages of individual acids were found to be: myristic, 0.2; palmitic, 30.2; stearic, 4.0; palmitoleic, 0.4; oleic, 24.4 and linoleic, 40.8. Triglyceride composition was calculated from the fatty acid compositions of the native oil and of the monoglycerides produced from it by pancreatic lipase hydrolysis. The oil is composed of 1.8, 27.7, 48.1 and 22.4% GS3, GS2U, GSU2 and GU3, respectively.
