By various chromatographic separations, three carotenoids were isolated from the soft coral Sarcophyton elegans. They were elucidated as peridinin (1), peridininol (2), and all-trans-peridininol-5,8-furanoxide (3) by spectroscopic methods and in comparison with reported data. This is the first report of 3 from soft corals.
