Abstract

The apolar and hydrophobic jojoba molecule was made more hydrophilic by the incorporation of primary amino groups via the introduction and subsequent reduction of azido groups. The azides were obtained by the substitution of bromine or a mesylate group introduced into the jojoba oil molecule; by opening of the epoxide ring in epoxy jojoba; or by the addition of bromoazide to the double bonds of jojoba.
