About Fucoxanthin

Fucoxanthin is a natural pigment of xanthophylls in carotenoids. The color is pale yellow to brown. It is a pigment contained in brown algae, diatoms, golden algae and yellow-green algae.

Fucoxanthin is widely present in various algae, marine phytoplankton, aquatic shells and other animals and plants.

Fucoxanthin has a variety of biological activities, including anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, weight loss, etc. It is widely used in the market as medicines, skin care and beauty products, and health products.

Fucoxanthin mainly absorbs light in the blue-green to yellow-green part of the visible spectrum.

The molecular formula of fucoxanthin is C42H58O6, and the CAS number is 3351-86-8.

MS-based technical means can realize the qualitative and quantitative analysis of fucoxanthin.
