Abstract The isolation of pentacyclic triterpenoids from seven species of fresh mangrove leaves using a simple and rapid method is described. The leaves were homogenized using chloroform—methanol and… Continue Reading
Abstract A sterol isolated from the roots of Amaranthus viridis has been assigned the structure 24-methylene-20- hydroxycholest-5,7-en-3β-ol.
Abstract The hydrolysis of steryl esters on thin-layer chromatographic plates by porcine pancreatic lipase is described. The sterols and fatty acids produced were separated on the same plate,… Continue Reading
During lipolysis of wax esters on thin layer chromatography (TLC) plates (1), abnormally high errors for stearic (18:0), palmitic (16:0) and oleic (18: t ) acids were found in the hydrolysates. These… Continue Reading
Oleanolic acid, a major component pentacyclic triterpene in the leaves ofAvicennia officinalis was found to be oxidized to oleanonic acid in the natural environment of Sunderban mangrove forest.
Fatty acids of the total lipids of flesh and hepatopancreas of Macoma sp. have been determined. The level of 20:5w3 (ca 17%), a biologically important fatty acid, was found to be considerably high.… Continue Reading
Fatty acids of total lipid, neutral lipid, triglyceride, sterol ester and phosphatidylcholine ofCerethidea cingulata (Gmelin) have been determined. Levels of 16:1 (14%), 20:5ω3 (15%) and… Continue Reading
