The quantitative recovery and structural alterations of aldehydes liberated from O-alk-1-enyl glycerols on thin layer chromatographic layers have been evaluated by using14C-labeled fatty aldehydes and chromatography. The results led to the development of a quantitative procedure for isolating the aldehydes produced from O-alk-1-enyl glycerols by shaking an ethereal solution of the ether-linked lipids with concentrated hydrochloric acid. The procedure is rapid and silicic acid does not interfere.
