Abstract

The following thesis details the isolation and structural elucidation of 22 secondary metabolites,
reported from natural sources for the first time, as well as the isolation of 18 known secondary
metabolites, from marine sponges of six disparate genera: Mycale (Chapter 2), Crella (Chapter 3),
Clathria (Chapter 4), Dendrilla (Chapter 5), Isabela (Chapter 6) and Sceptrella (Chapter 7).
Structures of all metabolites were elucidated spectroscopically, and where practicable, by
crystallographic methods, or with the assistance of computational chemistry methods.
