Abstract:
Seed samples from 22 species of the Capparidaceae (eight genera), one Caricaceae, 259 Cruciferae (88 genera), two Moringaceae, three Phytolaccaceae, one Pittosporaceae, six Resedaceae, one Salvadoraceae and two Tropaeolaceae were analysed for total and individual glucosinolate compositions. Glucosinolates with a wide variety of both alkyl and aryl substituents were quantified by GC of their hydrolysis products and, in certain cases, were confirmed by mass spectrometry.
