The technical conversion of lutein (10) ex Tagetes flowers to zeaxanthin is conducted by a process based on this reaction, and actually leads to meso-zeaxanthin (23). The formation of meso-zeaxanthin in animal tissue is likely to proceed by a similar enzymatic reaction. Copyright © 2004 by Marcel Dekker, Inc. 24 Liaaen-Jensen The final example shows the reaction mechanism for epoxide-furanoid rearrangement of common carotenoid 5,6-epoxides of neoxanthin (19) type by the influence of weak acid. It has been proved that the chirality at C-5 is unchanged during this reaction (34).

Azo-initiated peroxyl radicals (AMVN and AIBN) and less reactive toward radicals such as the phenoxyl radical compared to lycopene and b-carotene (40). However, the carotenes may not necessarily be better antioxidants since they may be destroyed more quickly. In another study by Woodall, lycopene was destroyed the fastest but afforded the least protection against lipid peroxidation in egg yolk phosphatidylcholine (41). One further comment should be made on the reactivity of carotenoid radicals.
