Abstract A series of acyclic isoprenoid hydrocarbons with head-to-tail, tail-to-tail and head-to-head linkages are present as important components in petroleum. This paper presents some evidence for the occurrence of the extended series beyond the C 40 isomers described to date. Thus, the regular head-to-tail homologs up to C 45 have been identified, as well as a new C 21 C 39 series, exhibiting methyl branches in the positions 3, 7, 11, 15,… of the molecule, which could derive from homologue… CONTINUE READING
