Definition:A mixture of triglycerides obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant, Ricinus communis. The major component is triricinolein. Typical fatty acid composition on hydrolysis is 87% ricinoleic acid, 7% oleic acid, 3% linoleic acid, 2% palmitic acid, 1% stearic acid, and trace amounts of dihydroxystearic acid.
Synonyms:related_synonym: Oleum Ricini;   Ricinus communis oil;   Ricinus oil;   oil of Palma Christi;   tangantangan oil
