The fatty acids of the seed and mesocarp oils of A. lancifolia (Sieb. et Zucc.) Meisn (I), P. trilobum (Sieb. et Zucc.) Nakai (II), L. umbellata Thunb (III), L. obtusiloba Blume (IV), L. glauca (Sieb. et Zucc.) Blume (V), and M. thunbergii (Sieb. et Zucc) (VI) were analyzed by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry.
The major components of the mesocarp oils were oleic, palmitic, and linoleic acids, similar to each other.
The major components fatty acids of the seed oils were as follows :
(I), (II), and (III) -lauric, decanoic, and oleic acids.
(IV) -decanoic, lauric, and cis-4-dodecenoic acids.
(V) -cis-4-dodecenoic, lauric, and oleic acids.
The mesocarps of (II) and the seeds of (VI) contained traces of oils.
