Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract Seed kernel oils of seven species of Lauraceae were examined and the fatty acid composition of six of these was determined. The oil of Lindera umbellata had 4% of cis-4-decenoic, 47% of cis-4-dodecenoic, and 5% of cis-4-tetradecenoic acid in the total fatty acids. Positive identification of these acids was made and new derivatives were prepared. Possible routes of biosynthesis are discussed. Oils from the other species did not contain more than a trace of unsaturated C10-C14 acids. Their major acids were capric and lauric with varying amounts of unsaturated C18 acids. © 1966 American Oil Chemists' Society.
