Abstract

Minor components composition of some types of surface lipids of some Coniferae were investigated. Among minor components of surface lipids the terpenoids of pimarane and abietane classes, squalene and p-coumaric acid were found. Their function is, probably, in the maintenance of ordering the surface lipids fraction and in increasing the temperature of phase transition «crystal – amorphous» phases.
