Eight new compounds have been isolated and identified from avocado fruit and seeds. Their structures were determined by chemical as well as by spectroscopic means. All compounds have been interconverted and shown to belong to the same group of long chain aliphatic compounds, constituting four pairs. Each pair contains two compounds which differ only in having a double or triple bond at the end of the chain.
