The non methylene interrupted cis,cis-octadecadienoic acids from human milk fat were pre­pared by thin layer chromatography on AgNO3 impregnated silicagel plates. The position of double bonds was determined by hydroxylation of the double bonds with OsO4 followed by silylation. The corresponding O-trimethylsilylether derivatives of the fatty acid methyl esters were analyzed by gaschromatography mass spectrometry. 14 isomers of the following series could be identified: C18:2 ⊿9. ( ; C18:2 ⊿ (; C18:2 ⊿ (10.11.12.).15 (⊿18.15) ; C18:2 ⊿5.9-, ⊿6.10; ⊿10.14; (⊿12.16). Possible biosynthetic pathways are discussed.
