Jojobamide has been synthesized from methyl jojoboate (the transesterification product of jojoba oil and methanol) and concentrated ammonium hydroxide by high temperature treatment of the mixture in a sealed vessel. Homojojobamide has been synthesized by partial hydrolysis of homojojobylnitrile, which was prepared from jojobyl mesylate. The melting points of the amides were found to be relatively high (>75 C) for a mixture of amides.
