dc.description.abstractIn a study aimed primarily at qualitative comparison of the organic constituents of the preorbital secretion of the steenbok, Raphicerus campestris, with those previously found in the preorbital secretion of the grysbok, R. melanotis, 109 compounds were identified in the secretion of the steenbok. Although the secretions from the two antelope are similar in that they are mostly long-chain, unbranched, saturated and unsaturated alcohols and various derivatives of these alcohols, only 22 of the identified compounds are present in both secretions. This is a small percentage of the more than 260 compounds present in the secretion of the steenbok, which is much more complex than that of the grysbok.
