Abstract

Distribution of n-alkanes in the leaf epicuticular wax of three species of Litsea that is L. graceae, L. rigidularis, and L. castanea, were investigated.. Leaf epicuticular wax was isolated using n-hexane and their n-alkane composition were analyzed using gas chromatography/flame ionization detector (GC/FID). Distribution of n-alkanes in Litsea species studied are dominated by the odd-numbered carbon n-alkanes. The n-alkanes distribution data shows almost similar results in all three Litsea species studied and might be useful in chemotaxonomic study for this plant.
