Induction of (Z)-8-heptadecene in marine green alga Bryopsis maxima by mechanical wounding

After mechanical wounding of the marine green alga Bryopsis maxima in a phosphate buffer, one main organic component was released to the solution. The organic compound was characterized by a molecular ion at 238 m/z by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and was deduced as 8-heptadecene by the fragment pattern. To identify the stereochemistry of 8… (More)
