Fatty acid composition of twelve algae from the Coastal Zones of Qatar
MetadataShow full item record
Fatty acid composition of twelve algal species from two different classes were determined. Three Chlorophyta species(Axetabularia calyxulux, Cladophors sericoides and Dictyosphaeria cavernosa) and nine Phaephyta species (Colpomenia sinuosa, Cystoseria trinodis, Dictyota cericornis, Hormophysa triquetra, Padina gymnospora, Sargassum binderi, S. boveanum, S. denticulatum and S, heteromorpha) were investigated. Thirty-four fatty acids were identified. Myristic, palmitic, oleic, linoleic, eicosodienic and lignoceric acids were predominant in all examined algal species. Branched saturated fatty acids were also found in all invistigatd species except Cladophors sericoides.
