Three species of macroalgae, Ceramium virgatum (Rhodophyta), Ulva intestinalis, and Cladophora vagabunda (Chlorophyta), harvested from the Romanian Black Sea coast, were studied as sources of valuable compounds that could be used as additives and biopreservatives. [...] Key Result Volatile compounds including hexanal (11.2 %), octane (9.8 %), nonanal (7.0 %), octanal (6.7 %), 2,5,5-trimethyl-2-hexene (4.7 %), 3-hexen-2-one (4 %), and o-cymene (3.6 %) were identified as the major components in the biomass…Expand

Chemical composition of volatile compounds in two red seaweeds, Pterocladiella capillacea and Osmundaria obtusiloba, using static headspace gas chromatography mass spectrometry
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the red seaweeds Pterocladiella capillacea and Osmundaria obtusiloba were obtained by static headspace extraction and then analyzed qualitatively by gasExpand
Evaluation of the volatile composition and fatty acid profile of seven Antarctic macroalgae
Fatty acids (FAs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are among bioactive substances produced by macroalgae, which have important reported biological activities. The aim of this work was toExpand
Evaluation of volatile organic compounds in brown and red sub-Antarctic macroalgae
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) comprise a wide range of compounds with low molecular weight that are released from seaweeds as secondary metabolites. Therefore, the aim of this work was toExpand
A sustainable process for the recovery of volatile constituents from Gracilaria lemaneiformis in agar production and evaluation of their antioxidant activities
The results indicated that the sustainable process improved the agar quality and that the extract contained many natural VCs with antioxidant activities, which have the potential to be used in functional food and cosmetics instead of as a discarded byproduct of the agars industry. Expand
Characterization of Macro- and Microalgae Extracts Bioactive Compounds and Micro- and Macroelements Transition from Algae to Extract
This study showed that extraction is a suitable technology for toxic metal decontamination in algae; however, some of the desirable microelements are reduced during the extraction, and only the final products, could be applied in food, feed, and others. Expand
Valuable natural products from marine and freshwater macroalgae obtained from supercritical fluid extracts
Findings show that marine and freshwater macroalgae, as a raw material, have the optimal biologically active compounds composition for cosmetics. Expand
Fatty acid composition from the marine red algae Pterocladiella capillacea (S. G. Gmelin) Santelices & Hommersand 1997 and Osmundaria obtusiloba (C. Agardh) R. E. Norris 1991 and its antioxidant activity.
This is the first report of the antioxidant activities of fatty acids from the marine red algae P. capillacea and O. obtusiloba, and shows a good activity for β-carotene bleaching. Expand
Characterization and differentiation of seaweeds on the basis of their volatile composition.
A Principal Component Analysis showed that beta ionone, benzaldehyde, 6-methyl-5-hepten-2-one, together with some acids were the most strongly affected by the season, with highest values in those samples that had been collected in the autumn. Expand

Abstract This study was undertaken to determine mineral content, amino acid and fatty acid composition of the freshwater macroalga – Cladophora glomerata. The studies were based on the contentExpand


Volatile compounds of green microalgae grown on reused waste water
Abstract The volatile compounds of two green algae, Scenedesmus sp. and Chlorella vulgaris, have been identified. These algae, which are dominant in biomass, have been harvested from a pond used forExpand
