Sphingomyelin was hydrolyzed to ceramide near quantitatively on treatment with 40% HF at 40°C for 72 hr. The reaction of sphingomyelin with HF is much slower than phosphoglycerides. HF treatment did not alter either the fatty acid composition or the stereochemical configuration of the sphingosine moiety of ceramide formed.
