This proposal aims to study the use of biosolventes to perform the extraction of wax from sugar cane. The sugar cane wax is mainly composed of fatty alcohols and long chain esters that can be used in nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals due to its lowering cholesterol properties, antioxidants and antiplatelet. The octacosanol, for example, which accounts for over 60% of fatty alcohols fro...
