Synonyms of Jatropha


Jatropha is a genus of flowering plants in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. The name is derived from the Greek words ἰατρός (iatros), meaning "physician", and τροφή (trophe), meaning "nutrition", hence the common name physic nut. Another common name is nettlespurge. It contains approximately 170 species of succulent plants, shrubs and trees. Most of these are native to the Americas, with 66 species found in the Old World. Plants produce separate male and female flowers. As with many members of the family Euphorbiaceae, Jatropha contains compounds that are highly toxic. Jatropha species have traditionally been used in basketmaking, tanning and dye production. In the 2000s, one species, Jatropha curcas, generated interest as an oil crop for biodiesel production and also medicinal importance when used as lamp oil; native Mexicans in the Veracruz area developed by selective breeding a Jatropha curcas variant lacking the toxic compounds, yielding a better income when used as source for biodiesel, because of its edible byproduct. Toxicity may return if edible Jatropha is pollinated by toxic types.

जत्रोफा लगभग १७५ प्रजाति की वनस्पतियों का समूह है जिसमें झाडियां और पौधे सम्मिलित हैं। इसके पौधे भारत, अफ्रिका, उत्तरी अमेरिका और कैरेबियन् जैसे ट्रापिकल क्षेत्रों में उत्पन्न होते हैं। यह एक बड़ा पादप है जो झाड़ियों के रूप में अर्द्ध शुष्क क्षेत्रों में उगता है। इस पादप से प्राप्त होने वाले बीजों में 25-30 प्रतिशत तक तेल निकाला जा सकता है। इस तेल से कार आदि चलाये जा सकते हैं तथा जो अवशेष बचता है उससे बिजली पैदा की जा सकती है। जत्रोफा अनावृष्टि-रोधी सदाबहार झाडी है। यह कठिन परिस्थितियओं को भी झेलने में सक्षम है।
