It has been established that the oil of the ripe seeds of the cotton plant of variety 108-F contains 9,10-epoxyoctadec-cis-12-enoic (I) and 12,13-epoxyoctadec-cis-9-enoic (II) acids. In addition, 9-hydroxyoctadecacis,trans-10,12-dienoic (III) and 13-hydroxyoctadeca-cis,trans-9,11-dienoic (IV) acids, found previously in other oils, have been detected.
