Abstract

So far as we are aware, the only attempt to investigate the absorption spectrum of vitamin E hitherto published is that of Evans and Burr1, who reported that the vitamin E fraction of wheat-germ oil, while having high general absorption, did not give any definite bands that might help in following the concentration of the vitamin. We have now re-examined this point and have obtained results of a more promising character.
