Chemistry and Technology of Jojoba Oil: State of the Art

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


During the past 15 years there has been activity on the analysis and chemistry of JoJoba oil. Most of the well-known reactions of double bonds and ester groups have been treated on JoJoba oil and reported in the literature. No special difficulties have been reported, and some of the intermediates have been treated as possible industrial products. A general view of the state of the art will be presented, with special emphasis on the derivates that promise to be of industrial interest in the near future (isomerizates, hydrogenated oil, lubricant additives etc.) Future research work for developing JoJoba oil markets must be undertaken in the search for industrial applications for the myriad of easy-to-prepare derivates.
