Occurrence and significance of phytanyl arenes across the Permian-Triassic boundary interval
MetadataShow full item record
Phytanyl benzene and phytanyl toluene occur in mudstones from several key Permian-Triassic Boundary (PTB) sections from mid-northern palaeolatitudes (Spitsbergen and Eastern Greenland), as well as mid-southern palaeolatitudes (Western Australia). The occurrence of these compounds through the different PTB sections is related to the occurrence of the previously identified C33 n-alkyl cyclohexane, suggesting their parent organism shared a similar unique ecological niche and was associated with the extinction horizon. Further, the lack of these compounds in the carbonate-dominated palaeoequatorial, Global Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP), Meishan-1 (South China) section possibly points to their source being temperature and climate controlled.
