What is it about?
The present paper involves a detailed evaluation of specific steroid biomarkers by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC– MS) and GC-metastable reaction monitoring (MRM) analyses of several crude oils and source rocks from the East Sirte Basin (Burwood et al., 2003; Aboglila et al., 2011, in press).
Why is it important?
Abundant dinosteranes, 4a-methyl-24-ethylcholestanes and various triaromatic steroids provided evidence for a source contribution from dinoflagellates deposited during the Mesozoic.
