Jatropha curcas is a perennial shrub of Euphorbiaceae family. Though the plant is highly toxic due to the presence of curcin and phorbol esters, saponins, trypsin inhibitors, and phytates, it is gaining importance because of its oil rich seeds. Oil content of the seed varies from 30-40% which can be converted to biodiesel. The remaining seed More...
