Abstract

Abstract The wax esters of sperm whale head oil have been isolated and shown to range from C 25–C 38 in chain length. The total wax esters were then fractionated according to the degree of unsaturation and the observed compositions have been compared to the values calculated assuming synthesis in a random fashion.
