Identification of a novel all-cis-5,9,12-Heptadecatrienoic acid in the cellular slime moldPolysphondylium pallidum
The all-cis-5,9,12-heptadecatrienoic acid was identified in the cellular slime moldPolysphondylium pallidum. The structural elucidation was accomplished by capillary gas chromatography, argentation thin-layer chromatography, and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. This fatty acid has not been reported previously.
