Abstract :

In this work the presence of unusual fatty acids ; cyclopropenoid fatty acids (CPFAs) in the seed oil of Acacia fernesiana (AF) is detected along with other normal fatty acids. These fatty acids were characterized by spectral support and chemical degradation methods. The CPFAs have been characterized as 7–(2–octacyclopropen–1–yl) heptanoic acid (malvalic acid) and 8–(2–octacyclopropen–1–yl) octanoic acid (sterculic acid) are 5% and 4% respectively. Further, the analytical values like iodine value, saponification value are 76 and 186 respectively. The Durbitaki titration and IR details proved the presence of above mentioned CPFAs in the seed oil of AF.
