Here is another way, not necessarily better.

Since you didn't provide any column names, let
df$tm refer to the column of times, which I will
assume is a vector of character strings.

## as a one-liner, results in a character object
(the '2004-5-1' is arbitrary, use any valid date)
minute <- format(as.POSIXct(paste('2004-5-1',df$tm,sep='-')),'%M')

## in multiple lines, making it possible to plot
the data with an axis having an accurate time
scale
tm <- as.POSIXct(paste('2004-5-1',df$tm,sep='-'))

## as above, minute is a character object
minute <- format(tm,'%M')

## or this way, minute is a POSIXt object, also
suitable for use with a time-scaled plot
minute <- trunc(tm,'mins')
