CHROMATOGRAM DATA

SOURCE
Chromatography of coenzyme Q10(VCQ0001) with alkali-treated alumina, leads to the formation of an isomeric compopound ubichromenol-10. Ubichromenol-10 may be formed during purification of coenzyme Q10 by an involved saponification step.(Ref. 0037)
CHEMICAL SYNTHESIS
Possible mechanism of conversion of substituted allylbenzoquinones into 6-hydroxychromenes and ""hepene"" homologues is shown in
[Table 0001] (Ref. 0042)
