This e-book is constructed from thirteen chapters and starts off with an research of the carbon-13 NMR spectra of derivatives of beta-carotene, akin to zeaxanthin, isozeaxanthin, violaxanthin, and alloxanthin. The reader is then brought to carotenoid-protein complexes, with emphasis at the contrast among carotenoid-lipoglycoprotein complexes and astaxanthin-proteins during which the absorption band of the carotenoid is unaltered match. next chapters take care of carotenoid glycosides; the constructions, chemical reactions, and stereochemistry of clearly happening carotenoids; synthesis of carotenoids and similar polyenes; and the apocarotenoid approach of intercourse hormones and prohormones in Mucoraceous fungi. The early steps in and later reactions of carotenoid biosynthesis also are tested. The final bankruptcy is dedicated to the photoregulation of carotenoid biosynthesis in crops.
This monograph may be a useful resource of knowledge for chemists.
