RETINENE, first noted by Wald in his work on the visual-purple cycle, is the aldehyde of vitamin A1, from which it has been prepared in high purity2. Retinene2, the corresponding aldehyde of vitamin A2, enters into the porphyropsin cycle of freshwater fish retinas. It has been obtained by fractionation of the aldehydes prepared from a mixture of vitamins A1 and A2 derived from ling-cod liver oil3. As described by Wald, retinene2 shows λmax. 405 mμ in chloroform) and 705 mμ in the antimony… Expand
