Abstract:

Beeswax has been separated into hydrocarbons 14, monoesters 35, diesters 14, triesters 3, hydroxy monoesters 4, hydroxpolyesters 8, free acids 12, acid monoesters 1, acid polyesters 2 and unidentified material 7. The esters have been identified by thin layer chromatography, gas liquid chromatography and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and by comparison with synthetic mono-, di- and triesters, hydroxy mono- and dieters and acid esters. The compositions of the acids, hydroxy acids, alcohols and diols from each ester fraction have been determined by gas liquid chromatography. Author
