Following administration of d-α-tocopherol-C14 to rats, a previously uncharacterized metabolite of the vitamin was isolated from the liver. This compound was shown by cochromatography and carrier crystallization to be identical to an oxidation product of α-tocopherol obtained by treatment with alkaline K3Fe(CN)6. Evidence is presented that the compound is a dimer of α-tocopherol.
