The aims of organic geochemistry included the investigation of the distribution of specific classes of organic compounds and the rigorous identification of the individual components interred in geological materials. Assuming that the organic matter present in a rock is of biological origin, it is of particular interest to investigate classes of compounds which are present in biological systems and which have been preserved in sediments. A number of workers have isolated and identified alkanes and fatty acids in sediments; this thesis is concerned with the examination of sedimentary fatty acids.
