Abstract: Conjugated linolenic acids (CLN) refer to a group of octadecatrienoic acids with three conjugated double bonds. Minor positional and geometrical differences among CLN isomers make their separation and identification difficult. We have used GC-MS and NMR to study three common CLN isomers namely alpha-eleostearic acid, beta-eleostearic acid and punicic acid, finding that some signals of olefinic carbon atoms in NMR spectra were mistakenly assigned in the literature. The present study was therefore undertaken to …
