Abstract

The sterol content of Laurencia obtusa var. pyramidata (Hudson) J. V. Bory ex. J. Agardh collected from Igneada, in the western part of the Black Sea coast of Turkey, was analyzed. They were cholest-5-en-3-ol (cholesterol), β-sitosterol, ergosta-5,7,22-trien-3-ol (ergosterol), 24-norcholesta-5,22(E)-dien-3β-ol, cholest-5,22(E)-dien-3β-ol, ergosta-5,24(28)-dien-3β-ol, 27- orergosta-5,22(E)-dien-3β-ol, ergosta-5, 22(E)-dien-3-ol, 23(S)-methylcholesterol, 23(S)-ethylcholesterol. The latter four were found in Laurencia species for the first time.
