Conclusions

1. The composition of the sterol fraction of the unsaponifiable group of substances of the fungusStachybotrys alternaus has been studied. It has been shown that, unlike the sterol fraction of other mycelial fungi, the sterol fraction studied contains almost no ergosterol.

2. On the basis of UV, IR, mass, and NMR spectroscopy, optical activity, and chromatographic behavior, the substances present in the sterol fraction have been identified structurally, and the ratio of their quantities has been found.
