To determine the positional-species composition (PSC) of the sunflower oil triacylglycerols (TAGs), these TAGs were separated in a native state by preparative TLC on alumina and subjected to a partial chemical deacylation with the Grignard reagent under anhydrous conditions. The rac-1,2-diacylglycerols (DAGs) formed in this reaction were identified by comparing their TLC mobilities with the respective standard separated from the products of enzymatic hydrolysis of lecithin. Subsequently, the DAGs as their borate complexes were isolated from the reaction mixture by preparative TLC on silica gel. The quantitative fatty acid composition of both the DAGs and the initial TAGs was determined by capillary GLC. The PSC of TAGs calculated from the data obtained using a computer program was consistent with the data on sunflower TAG composition reported by other researchers using an independent method. Thus, the technique developed here makes it possible to obtain reliable data on the concentration of all TAG positional species in the plant tissue.
