Abstract

The phospholipid content in various fractions obtained by high speed centrifugation of Hevea latex was studied. Distribution of phospholipid in latex as well as rubber of various clones of Hevea in relation to their yield and plugging index was compared. The rubber treated with sodium fluoride

was found to.contain a higher phospholipid content. The polybag rubber. deproteinized rubber and autocoagulated rubber had more phospholipid content than conventional acid coagulated rubber. Hevea clones with high yield and superior quality of rubber, were found to have a greater phospholipid content than low yielding clones.
