Abstract: This study analysed the variation of fatty acid composition in the total lipids from Ixora chinensis seeds at various stages of development and maturation. The result supports the authors opinion that crepenyn-ic and ixoric acids might be biogenetically related while the former might be the precursor of the latter, which was proposed by the authors in the paper published previously.

Key words: Ixora chinensis
