 Title    Chemical Composition and Surface Structures of Epicuticular Leaf Waxes from Castanea sativa and Aesculus hippocastanum  
 Abstract    Epicuticular leaf waxes of Castanea sativa and Aesculus hippocastanum contain the same lipids in form of homologous series o f hydrocarbons, wax esters, aldehydes, primary alcohols and fatty acids in similar concentrations without any main component dominating. In Ae. hip­ pocastanum wax acetates are present, additionally. Both waxes are found to contain triter-penols and triterpenol esters in remarkable amounts. ß-Amyrin, a-amyrin and lupeol are pres­ ent in both plant waxes, in Ae. hippocastanum wax friedelanol and friedelanone, additionally. The epidermis o f both plants are covered with a thin continuous wax layer without crystal­ loids. But the adaxial leaf surface o f C. sativa shows granular wax sculptures and therefore a different micromorphological ultrastructure for both leaf sides.
