Callyspongynes A and B: New polyacetylenic lipids from a southern australian marine sponge, Callyspongia sp

  • Francis Rooney
  • Robert J. Capon


A Callyspongia sp. collected by SCUBA off Barwon Heads, Australia, has afforded two new polyacetylenic lipids, callyspongynes A and B, the structures of which were assigned by spectroscopic analysis and chemical derivatization.
