Study on the composition of leaves epicuticular wax from three Goniothalamus species (G. andersonii, G. malayanus and G. sinclairianus) were carried out to detennine the present and amount of aliphatic hydrocarbon. The extraction of epicuticular wax was done using chlorofonn and analyzed with gas chromatographylflame ionization detector. The hydrocarbon distribution ranges from Cll -C34 with the maximwn concentration at C34. Chemical component present in the wax was detennined by Kovat's retention indices and using Cluster analysis to determine the correlation. It reveals that G. andersonii and G. malayanus do have some similarities due to the component present and its amount. The results might be useful in chemotaxonomic study for this species.
