Investigation on Cyanolipid in Sapindaceous Seed Oils

The cyanolipid content of various sapindaceous seed oils has been studied. Except for one, this new class of lipids is found in 37% of all oils. In these cyanolipids, long-chain fatty acids are hydroxylated with an unsaturated isoprenoid hydroxyl or with dihydroxynitrile. Despite the fact that such acids are preferentially incorporated in nitrile-containing fractions, the large amount of C20-carbon fatty acids commonly found in oil suggests a significant contribution. content of cyanolipids The fatty acid composition of the cyanolipid component was also compared to that of triglycerides. It was discovered that S. obavatus seed oil contains a diester with two fatty acid moieties esterified with 1-cyano-2-hydroxymethylprop-1-ene-3-ol. The analysis of NMR spectra has been used to determine the type and amount of cyanolipids in seed oils.
