C(25) highly branched isoprenoid (HBI) alkenes are ubiquitous lipids found in geochemical samples around the globe. The origins of these widespread geochemicals are believed to be restricted to a limited number of diatoms, including Haslea ostrearia (and related species), Rhizosolenia setigera, and Pleurosigma intermedium. The unsaturation of the HBI alkenes ranges from 2-6 in different species and cultures. The number of stereogenic centres is usually limited to two in the HBI alkenes due to… CONTINUE READING
