Some commonly available marine algae have been collected from the Karachi coast of Arabian Sea for the search of new chemical constituents having biological importance. The structures of purified samples have been elucidated with the aid of modern spectroscopic techniques. Among the known constituents a new metabolite (1) has been isolated from the brown alga Iyengaria stellata.
