Source Annales Des Sciences Naturelles-Botanique Et Biologie Vegetale
Abstract Crithmum maritimum L. (Apiaceae), the only species of the genus Crithmum >>, is a halophyte and chasmophyte apiaceous plant which grows on all the world's coastlines, but is particulary abundant in french coastal regions. Its therapeutic properties were already known in ancient times, but over the centuries its use decreased. Nowadays, its popularity is growing again, above all, its used in cosmetic. So we studied the fatty acid content of the leafy stalks of Crithmum maritimum L. because they play a capital role in permeability regulation of cell membrane on one hand and on the other hand in keratinisation troubles. Analysis of fatty acid was carried out by Gas Chromatography after a previous transesterification by ZARROUK's method (1981). The total lipid content is about 1.7 % dry weight whatever the geographical origin and the season. Eight fatty acid were identified, the more abundant is the linolenic acid (33.6 %), the second is the linoleic acid (18.2 %) and weaker proportion the palmitic acid (12.4).
