Chemical investigation of predator-deterred macroalgae from the Antarctic Peninsula

Academic Article


  • Chemical investigation of five Antarctic macroalgae whose tissues and crude extracts displayed ecologically relevant feeding deterrence in field bioassays was performed. Eleven compounds were characterized from the three red algae studied, of which four (1-3 and 9) were previously unreported, and four compounds were found from two brown algae, two (12 and 14) of which are new natural products. Several of these pure compounds have been individually investigated in ecological and/or pharmacological bioassays.
