Cucurbitaxanthin A (=(3S,5R,6R,3′R)-3,6-epoxy-5,6-dihydro-β,β-carotene-5,3′- diol; 5), cucurbitaxanthin B (=(3S,5R,6R,3′S,5′R,6′S)-3,6,5′,6′-diepoxy-5,6, 5′,6′-tetrahydro-β,β-carotene-5,3′-diol; 6), the epimeric cucurbitachromes 1 and 2 (=(3S,5R,6R,3′S,5′R,8′S)- and (3S,5R,6R,3′S,5′R,8′R)-3,6,5′,8′-diepoxy-5,6, 5′,6′-tetrahydro-β,β-carotene-5,3′-diol, resp.; 9/10), cycloviolaxanthin (= (3S,5R,6R,3′S,5′R,6′R)-3,6,3′,6′-diepoxy-5,6, 5′,6′-tetrahydro-β,β-carotene-5,5′-diol; 8), and capsanthin 3,6-epoxide (=(3S,5R,6R,3′S,5′R)-3,6-epoxy-5,6-dihydro-5,3′-dihydroxy- β,κ-caroten-6′-one; 7) were isolated from, red spice paprika (Capsicum annuum var longum) and characterized by their 1H- and 13C-NMR, mass, and CD spectra.
