Abstract

Abstract Ceramide has been isolated from alfalfa leaves mainly by silicic acid column chromatography. After acid hydrolysis of ceramide, eleven fatty acids and seven fractions of long chain base were obtained. The major fatty acids were the saturated 2-hydroxy C 20 and C 24. The major long chain base was dehydrophytosphingosine; a considerable amount of dihydrosphingosine and unidentified base were also detected.
