Chemical analyses have been made of a number of plant species in order to assess their suitability as renewable sources of hydrocarbon-like photosynthetic products. Yields of rubber and wax, glycerides, isoprenoids, and other terpenoids were estimated. Individual sterols were identified in latex from some species.
