The mechanism of adipocere formation. II. Separation and identification of oxo fatty acids in adipocere.

Abstract

Two kinds of oxo fatty acids were found to be present in the adipocere. One of them was identified as 10-oxohexadecanoic acid and the other was as 10-oxo-octadecanoic acid. The chemical identity of these compounds was confirmed by thin-layer chromatography (TLC), gas-liquid chromatography (GLC) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The adipocere… (More)
