Abstract Two Santa Barbara Basin marine sediments were hydrolyzed and the concentration and identification of their constituent carbohydrate moieties were determined. The ages of these sediments were estimated to be ~50 yr and ~750 yr, respectively, by counting seasonal varves by X-ray techniques. Thin-layer chromatograms developed in ethyl acetate, pyridine and water or in n-propanol, ethyl acetate and water indicated the major constituents of the desalted hydrolysates. Combined capillary gas… CONTINUE READING
