Isolation of (Z)-17-tetracosenal from the marine sponge Halichondria panicea

Chem Phys Lipids. 1986 Mar-Apr;39(4):365-8. doi: 10.1016/0009-3084(86)90118-0.


The isolation and characterization from Halichondria panicea of the long chain aldehyde (Z)-17-tetracosenal (1), one of the longest ever isolated from a marine sponge, is described. Structural assignment of the compound was confirmed by spectroscopy (1H-NMR and MS) as well as by selective ozonolysis.
