An example is neoxanthin (19 and 20) with different chirality for the allene in these two structures (hydrogen pointing up or down at the allene). Naturally occurring neoxanthin has structure 19. Optical activity can be measured by simple optical rotation, by optical rotatory dispersion (ORD) or by CD. For application of the CD method a substrate with a chromophore (unsaturated system) close to a chiral center is required. Carotenoids, containing a long polyene chain, lend themselves particularly well for this purpose; for CD, see Sec.

2. Carotenoids belonging to the biosynthetic pathways of living cells, or Metabolic transformation products of such dietary carotenoids in animals This definition does not require that a natural carotenoid was obtained by biosynthesis. Today nature-identical carotenoids may also be prepared by chemical synthesis, a fact of which people are frequently ignorant. Provided the chemical structure of a carotenoid obtained by chemical synthesis is identical in all respects, including stereochemistry, with that of a natural carotenoid, there is no difference between a natural and synthetic compound.
