1. The oil of the seeds ofPetroselinum sativum has been found for the first time to contain, in addition to linoleic acid, another dienoic acid, and its structure has been established as octadeca-cis-6-cis-9-dienoic acid. The acid has been called petroslinoleic.

2. For the case of three representatives of the family Umbelliferae (Petroselinum sativum,Coriandrum sativum, andEremodaucus Lehmanni) it has been shown that petroselinic acid occupies predominantly the 1,3 positions in the triglyceride molecules, i.e., in this respect it behaves in the same way as saturated acids.
