The results of the investigation of the glyceride composition of three samples of the seeds oils of various species of catalpa from different growth sites have shown a great similarity in the amounts of certain groups of triglycerides that they contain, in spite of the considerable differences in the fatty-acid compositions of these samples. An unusual affinity of unsaturated acids for the central position of the glycerol molecule and also a specificity of eleostearic acid in esterifying the extreme positions of the glycerol molecule in catalpa seed oils have been found.
