These included Methyl laurate (25), methyl myristate (33) and myristic acid
(34), methyl iso-pentadecanoate (37), methyl pentadecylate (40), isopropyl myristate (41), methyl palmitoleate (46), palmitoleic acid (49), methyl palmitate (47) and palmitic acid (51), methyl margarate (52), methyl linoleate (54), methyl oleate (55), Oleic acid (59), methyl elaidate (56), methyl stearate (58), methyl 9Z,12E-Octadecadienoate (60), methyl arachidonate (63), gondoic acid (64), methyl arachidate (65), methyl erucate (69), methyl behenate (70), and methyl lignocerate (75).
The reduction of the saturated fatty acids, in particular lauric acid, myristic acid
and palmitic acid is important, considering that they are involved in some pathologies (ULBRICHT & SOUTHGATE, 1991), whereas the increase of polyunsaturated fatty acids are related to healthier products (JAKOBSEN et al.
In decreasing order, linolenic acid (LA, 18:2n-6), oleic acid (18:1n-9), palmitic acid (16:0), alpha linoleic acid (18:3n-3), vaccenic acid (18:1n-7), palmitoleic acid (16:1n-7) and myristic acid
(14:0) were the most abundant fatty acids detected.
The major acid components of oil found by TLC were caproic acid, caprylic acid, capric acid, myristic acid
, palmitic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, etc.

Higher intakes of the most commonly consumed major saturated fatty acids (lauric acid, myristic acid
, palmitic acid, and stearic acid) was associated with a 24-percent increase in CHD.
Supplementation of 9% DDGS in pig diet did not affect the levels of saturated fatty acids including lauric acid (C12:0), myristic acid
(C14:0), palmitic acid (C16:0), stearic acid (C18:0) and unsaturated fatty acids including vaccenic acid (C18:1-t11) and linoleic acid (C18:2).
Since coconut has a vegetable origin, it has a high content of saturated fatty acids (Jayadas & Nair, 2006), mainly consisting of triglycerides with low degree of unsaturation, comprising two major fatty acids, lauric acid and myristic acid
(Pham, Casa, Gregorio, & Kwon, 1998).

Atul Sharma et al  has studied about the development of phase change materials for low temperature energy storage applications using binary mixtures of commercial grade acids such as Lauric acid (LA), Myristic acid
(MA), Stearic acid (SA) and Palmitic acid (PA).
Also, the values (%) of these fatty acids in degummed oil are myristic acid
Among the other substances positively identified in the study were nicotine, myristic acid
and isopropyl myristate, cocaine, cinnamaldehyde, vanillin, quinolene and butyl quinone, borneol and other forms of camphor, pyrene, phenol, toluene and naphthalene.
