The lipids of human tubercle bacilli on mild alkaline hydrolysis give a methanol-insoluble product, which on prolonged hydrolysis yields three main fractions, the mycolic acids, crude phthiocerol, and the mycoceranic acids. In the course of this work a re-investigation of the first two groups of compounds has been carried out, and synthetic analogues of methyl-branched long-chain acids occurring in tubercle bacilli have been prepared for the purpose of biological testing.
