Triterpenes and sterols of coffee oil
Review articleOpen access

AbstractSamples of triterpenes and sterols previously isolated from coffee oil and reported to contain lanosterol and coffeasterol have been reexamined by TLC and mass spectrometry. The presence of lanosterol is not confirmed; cycloartenol, cycloartanol and probably 24-methylenecycloartanol have been detected. The sterol fraction described as coffeasterol is a mixture of at least six methylsterols.
