TORBANITE (Botryoooeous braunii alginite)
see ref. 206
Coolaway, Australia suspension in methanol; 20 yg standard
REMARKS - In comparison with its "peat stage", Coorongite (Spectrum F.8) this Torbanite spectrum shows shorter average aliphatic chain lengths and less pronounced oxygen-containing compound series. Furthermore the alkene series at m/z 42, 56, etc. is relatively more pronounced in Torbanite, possibly indicating a more saturated nature of the carbon skeleton.
