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.
