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.

Previously, natural isomers of oleic (18:1) and 〈-linoleic acids (0.57–0.61%) in refined Uzbekistan safflower oil were reported by us [ 5]. In continuation of studies on the composition and structure of minor fatty acids of C. tinctoriusseeds, neutral lipids (NL) were isolated from ripe seeds. TLC on silica gel using solvent systems 1 and 2 and comparisons with known compounds showed that the NL...
