Information technology: The configuration at C10-OH of the caminoside aglycone (see formula) was shown to be R by interpretation of exciton coupling in the circular dichroism (CD) spectrum of the tetraphenylporphyrin carboxylate diester of (2R,10R)-2,10-nonadecanediol. This compound is derived from the title compound and was embedded in highly uniform nanometric liposomes for the CD measurements.
