IUPAC Name:(1R)-3,5,5-trimethyl-4-[(1E,3E,5E,7E,9E,11E,13E,15E,17E)-3,7,12,16-tetramethyl-18-(2,6,6-trimethylcyclohexen-1-yl)octadeca-1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17-nonaenyl]cyclohex-3-en-1-ol

(3R)-β-Cryptoxanthin(cas 472-70-8) is a natural caratenoid pigment that is converted to Vitamin A in the human body. 

β-Cryptoxanthin is an antioxidant and may help prevent free radical damage to cells and DNA, as well as stimulate the repair of oxidative damage to DNA. It is potential chemopreventative agent against lung cancer as well as other types of cancer.
