Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract The seeds of Alyogine hakeifolia, Alyogine huegelii, Gossypium australe, Hibiscus coatesii, Lawrencia viridigrisea and Radyera farragei (Malvaceae) contained 13.5-18.6% oil. Linoleic acid predominated (60.0-68.2%) in the component fatty acids of all the oils, followed by palmitic (9.9-18.1%) and oleic acids (7.8-15.8%). Cyclopropene fatty acids, malvalic and sterculic, were present in small concentrations (1.0-4.4%, 0.1-1.5% respectively). Dihydrosterculic acid was present in small quantities (trace-2.1%). © 1990 American Oil Chemists' Society.
