Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract Besides some usual fatty acids, the seed oil of Sabastiana brasiliensis (Euphorbiaceae) contains up to 39% (estimated by ultraviolet spectroscopy) of alpha-parinaric acid (cis, trans, trans,cis-9,11,13,15-octadecatetraenoic acid). The fatty acids were analyzed by gas chromatography and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry as their methyl esters. The structure of alpha-parinaric acid was proven by a combination of chemical and spectroscopic methods, conducted with the crude oil, the methyl ester mixture, and the isolated fatty acid methyl ester. Complete assignment of the H-1 and C-13 nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) shifts of alpha-parinaric acid was carried out by two-dimensional NMR experiments.
