Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract The effects on lipid extraction and methyl ester derivation of castor seeds were studied using different methods,and the fatty acid composition was also analyzed in this paper.The results indicated that significant differences existed in the effects of different methods on the lipid extraction and methyl ester derivation(P0.05).The method of dichlormethane-methanol was effective in lipid extraction and the extraction level was 58.25%,which had the great advantages of low toxicity,good solubility and complete extraction of lipids.Acid-alkali combined method had virtues of entire derivatization and less side effects,which could better reflect the fatty acid composition of castor seeds,and was a ideal method for the derivatization of castor seeds lipid.Meanwhile,castor oil mainly consisted of ricinoleic acid(76.43% ~86.50%),linolic acid(4.88% ~6.27%) and oleic acid(2.70% ~4.18%),and also contained small amounts of palmitic acid,stearic acid,linolenic acid and dodecenoic acid.
