Abstract


The chemical study of Cliona viridis, marine sponge recognized by its antibacterial and antifungal activity was investigated for the first time in Morocco. Cliona viridis contains different levels of primary and secondary metabolites. The antioxidant activity was evaluated by the DPPH test and calculated in mg Vit E equivalent/g of dry weight. The fatty acid composition determined by gas chromatography (GC) showed a predominance of palmitic, oleic and linoleic acids. Furthermore, we found the presence of several sterols which cholesterol is the most abundant.
