Effect of temperature on soybean seed constituents: Oil, protein, moisture, fatty acids, amino acids and sugars
Soybean plants were grown at day/night temperatures of 24/19 C until the beginning of seed development, and then transferred to 5 different temperature regimes (18/13, 24/19, 27/22, 30/25 and 33/28Expand
Comparison of two seed oils used in cosmetics, moringa and marula
Abstract Comparison of the seed oil of Moringa pterygosperma (moringa) and Sclerocarya birrea (marula) showed a marked difference in fatty acid composition and oxidative stability. Moringa, with 1000Expand
Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry of methyl esters of unsaturated oxygenated fatty acids
Silylation of hydroxyl groups in methyl esters of unsaturated hydroxy acids provides compounds that give mass spectra which can be readily interpreted, whereas spectra of underivatized esters areExpand
A detailed triglyceride analysis ofLesquerella fendleri oil: Column chromatographic fractionation followed by supercritical fluid chromatography
The triglyceride structure of oil fromLesquerella fendleri, a potential new U.S. crop, rich in C20 hydroxy fatty acids, was examined by silica gel column chromatographic fractionation followed byExpand
Search for new industrial oils: XVI. Umbelliflorae—seed oils rich in petroselinic acid
Seed oils of the order Umbelliflorae, including those from the families Umbelliferae, Garryaceae, Araliaceae, Cornaceae, Davidiaceae, Nyssaceae and Alangiaceae, were analyzed for fatty acidExpand
Fatty acid composition of seed oils of the meliaceae, including one genus rich incis-vaccenic acid
The seed lipids of three species ofEntandraphragma (Meliaceae) contain the largest proportion (31–50%) ofcis-vaccenic acid ever found in nature. The acid is not indicative of the family as a wholeExpand
The triglyceride composition, structure, and presence of estolides in the oils ofLesquerella and related species
Members of the genusLesquerella, native to North America, have oils containing large amounts of hydroxy fatty acids and are under investigation as potential new crops. The triglyceride structure ofExpand
New sources of γ-linolenic acid
Of the species analyzed in this study, Nonnea macrospernia, with 5.1% 7-linolenic acid in the seed, is the richest source of this fatty acid, and other species in the same family (Boraginaceae) are also good sources. Expand
Lipase-catalyzed synthesis and properties of estolides and their esters
Eight lipases were screened for their ability to synthesize estolides from a mixture that contained lesquerolic (14-hydroxy-11-eicosenoic) acid and octadecenoic acid. With the exception ofAspergillusExpand
