Abstract
  • High-resolution mass spectrometry was used to measure a range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in real time as they were produced by the ubiquitous marine cyanobacterium Synechococcus WH8102 during a 24-hour light/dark cycle. Ethenone, acetaldehyde, ethanol, isoprene, acetic acid, dimethyl sulfide (DMS), acetone, phenol, and several as-yet unidentified compounds were measured in higher concentration in live cultures than in azide-killed cultures or sterile artificial seawater. Several compounds were found in higher concentration in the daylight part of the diel cycle than in the night, suggesting VOCs are produced during active photosynthesis.
