Isolation and Characterization of Fatty Acid Esters from the Seeds of Cichorium intybus

Phytochemical investigation of the methanolic extract of the seeds of Cichorium intybus L. (Asteraceae) yielded five fatty acid esters characterized as n-hexadecanyl hexadecanoate (1); n-pentadecanyl octadec-9-enoate (2); n-hexadecanyl octadec-9-enoate (3); nhexadecanyl octadecan oate (4) and n-octadecanyl octadecanoate (5). The structures of these phytoconstituents were elucidated on the basis of spectral data analysis and chemical reactions.
