Perhaps the II. CHEMISTRY AND MEASUREMENT OF ETHER-LINKED LIPIDS 35 most important characteristic for distinguishing between 1- and 2-alkyl glyceryl ethers is the protons attached to glycerol carbons. The spectra displayed by these two ethers were distinctly different. Mass spectrometry coupled with GLC is of considerable advantage in establishing the structure of glyceryl ethers and their derivatives. An early study employing this combined technique was that of Hallgren and Larsson (1962), who investigated the structure of the dimethyl ethers of 1-octadecylglycerol (batyl alcohol) and l-m-9-oetadeeenylglycerol (selachyl alcohol).

Such anomalous behavior led Stein and Slawson (1966) to investigate the GLC behavior of a representative acetal, the dimethyl acetal of octadecanal. This compound underwent a significant alteration on certain column phases to yield methyl octadec-l-enyl ether or octadecanal. The presence of acid in the sample accelerated the conversion. 0 from m-alk-l-enyl ether. On the basis of their observations, Stein and Slawson proposed the following reaction to explain the elimination of a molecule of methanol: Η i/OCH3 RCH 2C N t>CH„ Η I RCH 2C-OCH 3 O— CH 3 A -AOCH3 + V - RCH2CHOCH3 -H + Initial attack by a Lewis acid, A, occurs on the acetal oxygen with subsequent formation of a carbonium ion, which then loses a proton.
