The triglycerides of walnut oil were fractionated by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) on the basis of partition number (PN). Each triglyceride was finally fractionated on the basis of aryl carbon numbers (CN) by gas-liquid chromatography (GLC). The fatty acids of triglyceride for each PN group were analyzed by GLC. Also, the fatty acid at ${\beta}-position$ of glycerol in each PN fraction separated by HPLC was determined by enzymatic hydrolysis with pancreatic lipase. The major triglyceride molecular species of walnut oil were $C_{18:2}{\cdot}C_{18:2}{\cdot}C_{18:1}$(LLO; 10.9%), $C_{18:3}{\cdot}C_{18:2}{\cdot}C_{18:2}$(LnLL; 17.6%) and $C_{18:2}{\cdot}C_{18:2}{\cdot}C_{18:2}$(LLL; 37.3%). The triglyceride molecular species occupied by unsaturated fatty acid at ${\beta}-position$ were more than 90%.
