Chemical Information
FooDB NameLycopene
DescriptionLycopene, also known as pro lycopene or lyc O mato, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as carotenes. These are a type of unsaturated hydrocarbons containing eight consecutive isoprene units. They are characterized by the presence of two end-groups (mostly cyclohexene rings, but also cyclopentene rings or acyclic groups) linked by a long branched alkyl chain. Carotenes belonging form a subgroup of the carotenoids family. Thus, lycopene is considered to be an isoprenoid lipid molecule. Lycopene is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
