Abstract

By high-field two-dimensional 1H NMR methods, the stereochemistry of the polyene chain has been assigned to four naturally occurring, isomeric mono-cis-lutein epoxides. The assignments corroborate our earlier suggestions according to which in Helianthus annuus the 9-cis isomer occurs without its 9′-cis counterpart. The stereomutation of natural lutein epoxide has also been studied.
