Using electron impact and chemical ionization mass spectrometry with methane and nitric oxide as reactant gases in conjunction with mass spectral analysis of the dimethyl disulfide derivatives of unsaturated constituents, 51 compounds have been identified in addition to the compounds previously found in the preorbital secretion of the grysbok Raphicerus melanotis. The compounds identified are saturated, monounsaturated, and diunsaturated alcohols and formates, saturated and monounsaturated aldehydes, saturated carboxylic acids, γ- and δ-lactones, alkyl methyl sulfides, and β-hydroxyalkyl acetates. All of these compounds have unbranched structures. The constituent previously incorrectly identified as (Z)-5-tetradecen-1-ol, was found to consist of the coeluting (Z)-7- and (Z)-8-tetradecenols. © 1996 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
