The plant Jatropha curcas L. is divided in two different variants: The non-edible variant, which we call Jatropha, contains diterpene compounds known as phorbol esters. The main product obtained from Jatropha is oil, which is extracted from the seeds. Due to its striking characteristics, the oil is highly suitable for production of bio-diesel and bio-kerosene. Alternatively, the oil serves as attractive ingredient for soap production or as a lubricant.
