Abstract

A detailed analysis of the secondary metabolites of a specimen of Agelas sventres was carried out here for the first time. The chemistry of Agelas sponges is dominated by bromopyrrole derivatives. Besides three known bromopyrrole metabolites, a new compound, sventrin (1), was isolated and its structure identified using spectroscopic methods. Sventrin (1) was shown to be a feeding deterrent compound against a common omnivorous reef fish.
