Determination of fatty oil yield and chemical composition of Osteobrama belangeri(Val.)


Thanh Hoang , Minh Tam and VuNgoc

The fatty oil content of Osteobrama belangeriand its chemical compositions were determined by the analysis of fatty acid methyl esters using gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC-MS). A total of eighteen compounds were identified constituting about 96.1% and 96.7% of the crude head and body oils. Ten compounds were identified as major fatty acids in the oil and the main acids were oleic acid (38.3 and 35.1%), palmitic acid (27.3 and 23.9%), linoleic acid (12.6 and 21.8%) and octadecanoic acid (8.7 and 7.7%) besides two trace fatty acids
