Summary: Homologous series (C15-C24) of novel 3-n-alkyl-1,2- dithianes and 3-n-alkyl-6-methyl-1,2,dithianes were identified in immature sediments from the Vena del Gesso basin, northern Appenines, Italy, and from the Peru upwelling area (ODP Site 684). The occurrence of cyclic di- and trisulphides with linear, acyclic isoprenoid and hopanoid carbon skeletons in thermally immature sediments indicates that inorganic polysulphides are incorporated into functionalized lipids during the early stages of diagenesis.
