Abstract: This paper deals with the constituents of fatty acids from the seed oils of Pinaceae in China, including 30 species belonging to 8 genera. Discovered are three characteristic fatty acids, i.e. Cis-5,9-octadecadienoic acid, Cis-5,9,12-octadecatrienoic acid and Cis-5, 11, 14-eicosatrienoic acid. Based on the data obtained, the distribution of the three characteristic fatty acids in Pinaceae of China is also discussed.

Key words: Pinaceae, Fatty acid, Cis-5、9-Octadecadienoic acid, Cis-5、9、12-Octadecatrienoic acid, Cis-5、11、14-Eicosatrienoic acid, Distribution
