Özet

The fatty acid compositions of the seeds of Peucedanum ruthenicum, Peucedanum chryseum, Peucedanum palimbioides, Peucedanum obtusifolium, and Peucedanum zedelmeierianum were investigated by gas chromatography (GC). The main fatty acids in the species were found to be palmitic acid (C 16:0, 5.7896-14.68%), oleic acid (C 18:1 omega-9, 31.28%-68.06%), and linoleic acid (C 18:2 omega-6, 15.99%-33.74%). Trace amounts of cis-vaccenic acid (C 18:1 omega-7, 0.82%-1.40%) were found in the seed oils of all of the species investigated.
