    Abstract

    Seeds of Monodora myristica and M. tenuifolia were extracted with hexane and the extractswere subjected to column chromatography, LC-MS and NMR analysis. In addition to masses of previously isolated compounds, other masses corresponding to unidentified compounds from the plants were detected. Using 2D NMR techniques, one of the fractions from M. tenuifolia was characterised as a novel 13-(2-butylcyclopropyl)-6,9-dodecadienoic acid. However, none of the compounds detected in LC-MS corresponded to the ones previously identified by GC-MS.
