Oxygenated Acids From Seed Lipids of Carthamus tinctorius
Carthamus tinctorius L. (safflower, Asteraceae) is a widely distributed oil plant that is cultivated in many countries, including Uzbekistan, mainly for safflower oil manufacturing.
Natural triacylglycerides containing oxygenated acids are characteristic of reserve lipids in many representatives of the family Asteraceae [1, 2, 3, 4]. The sets of epoxy and hydroxyacids in several species of this family are essentially the same and, as a rule, consist of oxygenated oleic (18:1) and linoleic (18:2) derivatives with various isomers of the oxirane ring and hydroxyls relative to the olefin bonds.
