Abstract : Beeswax has been separated into hydrocarbons (14%), monoesters (35%), diesters (14%), triesters (3%), hydroxy monoesters (4%), hydroxpolyesters (8%), free acids (12%), acid monoesters (1%), acid polyesters (2%) and unidentified material (7%). The esters have been identified by thin layer chromatography, gas liquid chromatography and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and by comparison with synthetic mono-, di- and triesters, hydroxy mono- and dieters and acid esters. The compositions of the acids, hydroxy acids, alcohols and diols from each ester fraction have been determined by gas liquid chromatography. (Author)
