Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract Abelmoschus manihot (L.)]seed morphology chatacters is reported relatively entire in the article at first.And the chemical composition of its seeds have been studied either.The results showed:there are plenty of fatty acids in the seed oil which is necessary for human body.The main component were:linolic acid(82.179%),oleic acid(9.195%),palmitic acid(4.756%),stearic acid(2.681%),linolenic acid(0.328%)etc,and eighteen kinds of amino acids,twenty four kinds of mineral elements from the seed were also determined.The contents of amino acid and mineral elements in the seeds were abundant and there were plenty of unsaturated fatty acids in its seed oil,and its content reached 91.185%.The results showed that the seed and its oil were mourishment and in health protection,and of potential value in exploitation and utilization.
