    • Abstract

       

      The waxy matter isolated from the flowers ofHibiscus sabdariffa by alcohol extraction yielded phytosterolin as the ether-insoluble component. The ether-soluble portion consisted mainly of hydrocarbons having chain lenghts round about C27 along with very small amounts of sitosterol. By the extraction of safflower with carbon tetrachloride was obtained a wax made up mostly of paraffin of chain lenght C29 and near homologues.
