jatropha curcas seeds have a high oil content that can be processed into biodiesel via transesterification. jatropha will also grow in arid and/or depleted soil where other crops may not thrive.
kingdom: plantae division: embryophyta class: spermatopsida order: malpighiales family: euphorbiaceae genus: jatropha species: j. curcas
jatropha curcas is a native of tropical america so should thrive in high rainfall areas assuming all other requirements are met.

the scientific name is jatropha curcas.
jatropha curcas, saimaruba, pongamia pinnata
jatropha oil itself is a substance. so not being a (pure) compund, it has no chemical formula. it might be toxic.there are tens of different formulas, because it's not a pure chemical by itself but a mixture. it is a non-food, biodiesel energy oil from pressed seeds (35% oil) of jatropha curcas(plant family: euphorbiaceae).
mali biocarburant gets 1 litre of oil from 4 kg of seed. that is seed out of the fruit pod. jock brandis
the tuba tuba plant is found in the philippines. it's latin name is jatropha gossypifolia or jatropa curcas plant. it has water, nitrogen, and chlorine.
tuba-tuba, or jatropha curcas, has been used by filipinos to treat muscle pain, sprains, rheumatism, arthritis, stomach ache, snake bites, and sores. additionally, the sap of the plant is believed to have anti-cancer properties.
jatropa curcas produces oil in their seeds known as bio-deasal. it can be ignited to create fire.
no. jatropha can not even make a dent on the worlds fuels needs. no bio-whatever can even come close to meeting the u.s. needs. every time energy changes state (cultivating plants, transport, refining, and re-transporting) loses more energy than it transmits. (second law of thermo-dynamics). all uses of energy result in losing more than half what you started with.

the price fob port of shipment for one mt of jatropha oil purpose seeds is around usd$100 - 120. the price for one mt of jatropha crude oil is around usd$ 700.
the opposite of "in vitro" (literally in glass) is "in vivo" (in life).

bio-pesticides are derived as residual bi-products after fermentation of the jatropha crude oil for biodiesel production
the jatropha tree should be fertilized once every spring, summer and autumn. the preferred fertilizer for this tree is one that is high in phosphorus content.

yes. in vitro means, "in glass" or "outside of the body", and in vitro pregnancy test is a test that is performed "outside" of the human body. in vitro fertilization is egg fertilization that is performed outside of the body. all home pregnancy tests are "in vitro".
it is pietri dish and you can use it several ways in a lab mostly you use it to caltivate in vitro, tissue culture etc
