Abstract:
The Garcinia mangostana seed oil contains 56.2% oleic acid and 6.4% linoleic acid. The palmitic (14.8%) and stearic acid (9.0%) are major components amongst the saturated acids with smaller amounts of capric (0.9%), lauric (2.2%), myristic (6.6%) and arachidic (3.9%). Moreover, Phoenix sylvestris, cerita mistis, chrysalidocarpus lutescens, Washingtonia filifera and phoenix rupicola belong to palmae family and could be compared with the oils rich in lauric acid such as cinnamon and palm kernel oils (80-90% and 45-58% respectively).
