Abstract

SUMMARY

The carotenoids of were examined; four main fractions were separated. These were hydrocarbons, mono- and di-hydroxylated compounds and a very polar fraction. Further separation of the hydrocarbon fraction showed the presence of nine compounds and of the very polar fraction which showed an all- form and three isomers. Data for these fractions is presented; at least two of the fractions are C carotenoids.
