The major constituents of the leaves oil were hentriacontane (21.48%), nonacosane (20.59%), heptacosane (19.78%), pentacosane (5.58%), octacosane (3.47%), triacontane (2.81%) and hexacosane (2.04%).
The major hydrocarbons were ranging from hexane (C6) to pentacosane (C25) (Table-1).
For example if we consider the last eleven larger compounds from 1- nonadecene to pentacosane, summation of their percentage is about 30% in case of non-catalytic oil while their amount is only about 18% in case of catalytic oil.
