The total kernel lipid extracted from chironji (Buchanania lanzan, Anacardiaceae) was 65.6% of the dry kernel, and consisted of 90.4% neutral lipids, 3.4% glycolipids and 6.2% phospholipids. Neutral lipids were triacylglycerols (82.2%), free fatty acids (7.8%) and small amounts of diacylglycerols, monoacylglycerols and sterols. Acylmonogalactosyldiacylglycerol and acylated sterylglucoside were the major glycolipids, with a minor amount of digalactosyldiacylglycerol. The phospholipids consisted of phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylinositol as major phospholipids and minor amounts of lysophosphatidylethanolamine and lysophosphatidylcholine. The fatty acid composition of these different neutral lipids, glycolipids and phospholipids was estimated.
