Abstract

The fatty acid composition of the seed oils of the species, Hydnocarpus kurzii, H. wightiana and H. odorata were determined by gas-liquid chromatographic (g.l.c.) analysis. The percentages of individual fatty acids were found to be: hydnocarpic 23.0, 33.9, -; chaulmoogric 29.6, 35.0, -; gorlic 25.1, 12.8, -; lower cyclic homologues 0.3, 4.6, -; myristic 0.6, 0.8, 0.4; palmitic 8.4, 5.6, 11.8; stearic -, 0.6, 4.7; palmitoleic 6.0, 1.3, 0.5; oleic 5.4, 3.6, 21.8; linoleic 1.6, 1.8, 29.3; linolenic -, -, 31.2; respectively.
