Abstract

The methanolic extract of the marine sponge Ircinia felix has yielded nine novel fatty acid esters, (7E, 12E, 18R, 20Z)-variabilin (5Z, 9Z)-22-methyltricosadienoate, (7E, 12E, 18R, 20Z)-variabilin (5Z, 9Z)-tetracosadienoate, (7E, 12E, 18R, 20Z)-variabilin hexadecanoate, (7E, 12E, 18R, 20Z)-variabilin 10-methylhexadecanoate, (7E, 12E, 18R, 20Z)-variabilin 15-methylhexadecanoate, (7E, 12E, 18R, 20Z)-variabilin 14-methylhexadecanoate, (7E, 12E, 18R, 20Z)-variabilin 9-octadecenoate, (7E, 12E, 18R, 20Z)-variabilin octadecanoate, and (7E, 12E, 18R, 20Z)-variabilin 2,11-dimethyloctadecanoate, along with the recently described (7E, 12E, 18R, 20Z)-variabilin 11-methyloctadecanoate. The characterization of the new fatty acids (5Z, 9Z)-22-methyltricosadienoic and 2,11-dimethyloctadecanoic acids is also described. The chemical structures were determined by extensive spectroscopic, chromatographic, and chemical analyses.
