The crystal structure of the title compound (C40H56, Mw = 536.8) has been redetermined by X-ray diffraction methods in order to achieve a structure at higher resolution suitable for theoretical calculations. The crystal system is monoclinic, P21/n, a = 7.656(2), b = 9.445(5), c = 23.536(15) Å, β = 93.41(2)°, V = 1698.8(15) Å3, Z = 2, D = 1.050 m g/m3, 130 K. R = 0.071, Rw = 0.076.

Keywords: Crystal Structure; β-Carotene; Carotenoids; Photosynthesis
