The oils of some plants of the family Malvaceae
1. The physical and chemical properties and the fatty-acid and glyceride compositions of the oils of four plants of the family Malvaceae have been studied. They all belong to the palmito-oleo-linoleic group.
2. Their glyceride structure does not correspond to the principle of statistical distribution, since almost all the unsaturated-acid radicals are concentrated in the β position.
