The physical and chemical properties of the oils of four plants —Erysimum gypsaceum,Brassica campestris,Crambe schugnana, andCamelina rumelica — have been determined. Their fatty-acid and glyceride compositions have been established. In these triglycerides, erucic acid occupies only the α,α' positions. Erucic acid has been isolated from the mixed fatty acids ofErysimum gypsaceum.
