Abstract

Trifluoroacetylated whole-cell methanolysates of four strains each of and were analysed by gas chromatography, using a glass capillary column. The major chromatographic peaks were identified by mass spectrometry as derivatives of fatty acids and carbohydrates. In addition, two predominant peaks, present in chromatograms representing , were identified as 2-octadecanol and 2-eicosanol. These secondary alcohols were not found in any of the strains of studied. The amount of tuberculostearic acid in the latter species was less than 1 % of that in
