This resulted in a 83.6% (molar) of elaeostearic acid and 16.4% (molar) of oleic acid.
As it can be seen and although the composition of the oil was rather simplified, the experimental and theoretical values are very much in agreement, which support the idea of a large concentration of the elaeostearic acid. Additionally [.sup.1] H NMR results agree with the SEC results as well as the analytical characterization; all of them indicating that the oil is essentially monodisperse and formed mainly by triglycerides containing elaeostearic acid.
