Abstract

Abstract Alternanthera triandra, Lam Syn. Alternanthera sessilis (Linn) R. Br. seed oil contains a moderate source of hydroxy fatty acid (ricinoleic acid, 22.1%), along with the other normal fatty acids such as myristic (3.9%), palmitic (16.9%), stearic (5.9%) oleic (26.0%) and linoleic (25.2%). These fatty acids have been determined and characterized by GLC, TLC, ultraviolet (UV), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), 1 H NMR, 13 C NMR, MS and chemical transformations.
