Carotenoids — four brings jointly the most lectures offered on the Fourth overseas Symposium on Carotenoids held in Berne, Switzerland, on August 25-29, 1975. The papers discover quite a lot of themes in relation to carotenoids, together with their carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra, stereochemistry, and biosynthesis. Carotenoid-protein complexes, carotenoid glycosides, xanthoxin and abscisic acid, and photoregulation of carotenoid biosynthesis in crops also are mentioned.
This booklet is created from thirteen chapters and starts with an research of the carbon-13 NMR spectra of derivatives of beta-carotene, reminiscent of 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 suit. next chapters care for carotenoid glycosides; the constructions, chemical reactions, and stereochemistry of evidently taking place carotenoids; synthesis of carotenoids and similar polyenes; and the apocarotenoid process 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 vegetation.
This monograph may be a beneficial resource of data for chemists.
