13C Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy of cyanolipids and cyanolipid-containing seed oils

13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signals of all carbon atoms of the hydroxynitrile moieties on which cyanolipids are based have been assigned. The four known types of cyanolipids can be conveniently distinguished and identified by13C-NMR whether they are in pure form or in unfractionated seed oils from which they are derived.
