 Title    and Chemistry and Morphology of Epicuticular Waxes from Various Organs of Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis [Link] Schneider)  
 Abstract    The surface o f leaves and seed coats o f Jojoba is covered with sim ilar am ounts o f epicuticular waxes per surface area. The com position o f these waxes was analysed by chem ical methods, whereas their microscopic structures in situ were revealed by scanning electron m icroscopy. Differences in the chemical structure and com position o f the com plex m ixtures cause differences in the morphological appearance o f wax on the surface o f both organs. The predom inance o f saturated and long chain components in leaf wax results in a crystalline wax layer on this organ. In contrast, the seed coat carries a cover o f non-crystalline fluid consistency. The lower m elting point o f this wax mixture is caused by shorter chain and unsaturated com pounds predom inating on this organ.
