The composition of the neutral lipids in the free and bound lipids from four varieties of experimentally cultivated potatoes were identified and quantified by thin layer- and gas-liquid chromatographies. The results were summarized as follows ; 1. The neutral lipids contained in the free and bound lipids were fractionated and identified as esterified sterol, triglyceride, diglyceride, free fatty acid, and free sterol, of which triglyceride and esterified sterol were most abundant. Meanwhile, the triglyceride and esterified sterol contents in the free lipid to the total lipid quantity were 10 and 2.7 % respectively, approximately 3 times higher than the 3.0 and 0.8 % contained in the bound lipid. 2. The fatty acid composition of the neutral lipids in the free and bound lipids was the same as that of the total free and bound lipids. The only difference was that content of saturated fatty acid was lower rate in the neutral lipid of the free lipid than in the total free lipid, whereas the unsaturated fatty acid was more abundant in the neutral lipid of the free lipid. Fatty acid composition of individual neutral lipid was of almost the same pattern as that of the total neutral lipid.
