Abstract

Abandonment of the name eloxanthin is proposed. The principal carotenoids in various species of Elodea were (3R, 3′R, 6′R)-lutein (β,ε-carotene-3, 3′-diol) and β, β-carotene. The minor pigments were neoxanthin-X (5′, 6′-epoxy-6, 7-didehydro-5, 6, 5′, 6′-tetrahydro-β, β-carotene-3, 5, 3′-triol), 9′-cis-neoxanthin- X, 9- and 13-cis-violaxanthin (5, 6, 5′, 6′-diepoxy-5, 6, 5′, 6′-tetrahydro-β, β-carotene-3, 3′-diol), antheraxanthin (5, 6-epoxy-5, 6-dihydro-β, β-carotene-3, 3′-diol), neolutein A (13- or 13′-cis-lutein) and neolutein B (9- or 9′-cis-lutein). All attempts to isolate eloxanthin failed.
