Abstract

IT is a matter of interest that, notwithstanding the very large number of substances that have been isolated from lichens, there is only one recorded example of a material containing nitrogen, namely, picroroccellin, isolated by Stenhouse and Groves in 1877 from a variety of Roccella fuciformis, and to which they attribute the formula C27H29O5N3.
