Selected powdered samples from the Tarfaya and Gubbio sections were also solvent-extracted with a mixture of dichloromethane-methanol (9:1, v/v), and the total lipid extracts were separated by column chromatography into polar and apolar fractions, and the latter into saturated and unsaturated fractions.
For the Tarfaya core samples, the polar fractions were first treated by Raney Nickel desulphurization, to release sulphur-bound hydrocarbons, followed by column separation and hydrogenation of the apolar tractions to yield phytane.
