|Alternate Names||Vitamin E Acetate; all-rac-α-Tocopheryl acetate ;DL-α-Tocopheryl acetate|
|Base Catalog Number||100559|
|Beilstein Registry Number||97512|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||Tocopherols (TCP) (vitamin E) are a series (α, β, γ and δ) of chiral organic molecules that vary in their degree of methylation of the phenol moiety of the chromanol ring. Tocopherols are lipid soluble anti-oxidants that protect cell membranes from oxidative damage. α-Tocopherol is the form of tocopherol preferentially absorbed by homo sapiens. Tocopherol acetate has properties similar but not identical to α-tocopherol.|
