Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract The fatty acids of seed oils of the Flacourtiaceae, Hydnocarpus anthelmintica, Caloncoba echinata and Taraktogenus kurzii, have been examined by a combination of capillary gas chromatography, silver ion high performance liquid chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. In addition to the common range of cyclopentenyl fatty acids found in such oils, 13-cyclopent-2-enyltridec-4-enoic acid was a major component of H. anthelmintica and was identified by mass spectrometry as its picolinyl ester and dimethyldisulphide adduct. It has not previously been found in nature. In the other seed oils, the isolated double bond in the corresponding fatty acid was in position 6, as expected. Similarly, cis-4-hexadecenoic acid and C16 and C18 cyclopentyl fatty acids were identified for the first time in H. anthelmintica. Iso- and anteiso-methylbranched fatty acids were present in trace amounts. © 1989 American Oil Chemists' Society.
