Abstract:
The seed oil of P. virgata (family Polygalaceae) contains 74% of monoacetotriglycerides, the first found in nature with the acetate group in position 2 of sn-glycerol. Naturally occurring triglycerides characterized previously all have the acetate at position 3. The configuration of the acetoglyceride from P. virgata was established by a combination of optical rotatory dispersion and NMR.
