Superlative carotenoids

Title variants
Languages of publication
A selection of carotenoids beyond normal appearance or properties has been presented at the 16th International Symposium on Carotenoids. Some of the exceptional compounds shown at the conference cannot be reproduced in this proceeding since they have not yet been published. In addition, editorial space limitation does not allow illustrating all of the previously mentioned carotenoids.
