The method consists of the extraction of fat from perilla seeds, separation of hydrocarbons and 2-alkylcyclobutanones with florisil column chromatography, and identification of hydrocarbons and 2-alkylcyclobutanones by gas chromatography–mass spectroscopy (GC-MS). Concentrations of hydrocarbons and 2-alkylcyclobutanones increased with the irradiation dose. The major hydrocarbons in the irradiated perilla seeds were 8-heptadecene and 1,7-hexadecadiene from oleic acid and 6,9-heptadecadiene and 1,7,10-hexadecatriene from linoleic acid. One of the 2-alkylcyclobutanones, 2-(5′-tetradecenyl)cyclobutanone, was found in the highest concentration in the irradiated perilla seeds. Radiation-induced hydrocarbons in the perilla seeds were detected at doses of 0.5 kGy and higher, and radiation-induced 2-alkylcyclobutanones were detected at doses of 1 kGy and higher. These compounds were not detected in nonirradiated perilla seeds.
