Metabolite Identification
Common NamePetroselinic acid
DescriptionPetroselinic acid is a cis-monoenoic fatty acid, and is present as a major component in parsley seeds (and many other species of the Umbelliferae family), described first in 1909 (Vongerichten, E. Kohler, A. Petroselic Acid, a New Oleic Acid. Berichte der Deutschen Chemischen Gesellschaft (1909), 42 1638-9.). Petroselinic acid is an important oleochemical material for the food, cosmetics, chemistry and pharmaceutical (PMID: 16604360 ).
