Functionalization at the Double-Bond Region of Jojoba Oil. 3. Hydroxylic Derivatives

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

11 Scopus citations


The apolar and hydrophobic nature of jojoba oil has been altered to slightly more hydrophylic by epoxidation, hydrolysis, and alcoholysis at the double bonds, thus forming hydroxylic derivatives. Some inorganic esters, derived from SOCl2, POCl3, and (C2H5O)3P, have been prepared. Exposure of the oil to direct sunlight in the presence of a photosensitizer (via 1O2) yielded some oxidized products.
