Abstract : The hydrocarbon fraction of Sarcina lutea lipid extracts, comprising approximately 20% of the lipid material, was characterized by a combination of thin-layer and gas-liquid chromatography, and by infrared spectroscopy. Thirty- seven components ranging in carbon number from 16 to 36 were observed by gas- liquid chromatography. These components consisted of 88.9% n-saturates, 1.2% monoenes, 2.1% dienes, 5.0% trienes, and 0.6% branched saturates. Less than 0.1% of the hydrocarbon material was aromatic.
