Nyamplung (Calophyllum inophyllum) has many benefits ranging from roots, stems, leaves, until seeds. In this seed, nyamplung contained significantly high amount of crude oil (70.4%). C. inophyllum oil is known as non edible. Therefore Indonesian people generally only know that seeds can produce oil that can be used for biodiesel. In this work, the identification of double bond position in triacylglycerols fatty acids were investigated. The isolation process was started with separation of non polar lipid fraction (NPLF) from crude C. inophyllum oil via batchwise multistage liquid extraction. Triacylglyecrol was obtained in high purity (99%) and was analyzed by TLC and GCMS. It was found that fatty acids of tryacylglycerol are palmitic acid (C16:0), stearic acid (C18:0), oleic acid (C18:1c), linoleic acid (C18:2c), and linolenic acid (C18:3c). Moreover, triacylglycerol isolated from C. inophyllum oil was promising as edible oil.
