A decenoic acid has been separated from sperm head oil. Its methyl ester was oxidised with potassium permanganate in acetone, and after the saponification of the acid ester contained in the oxidation products, azelaic acid was identified. The presence of formic acid in the oxidation products was also indicated. Accordingly the decenoic acid in sperm head oil is proved to be Δ9:10-decenoic acid, having the formula CH2=CH·(CH2)7·COOH.
