Abstract

The oil of the seeds ofArtemisia absinthium has yielded 95.5% of glycerides. Of these, 59.5% consists of unoxidized and 32.0% of oxidized triglycerides, 1.3% of diglycerides, and 2.7% of monoglycerides. The remaining 4.5% of the oil is made up of hydrocarbons, sterols, sterol acetates, and free fatty acids. The oxy acid content has been calculated from the results obtained (∼12% of the total fatty acids of the oil) and this figure is close to that for the oxy acid content found from the neutralization number of the mixture of fatty acids of the oil (∼11%).
