    Blue carotenoid violerythrin was investigated by X-ray crystallography and ultrafast time-resolved spectroscopy. The X-ray crystal structure shows that the molecule is nearly planar with the terminal rings positioned in the s-trans conformation. Time-resolved spectroscopic data of violerythrin are similar to those of other carbonyl carotenoids with long conjugated chains. The study determined structural requirements for a blue, neutral carotenoid: 1) planar, symmetric chromophore, 2) central polyene chain with nine or ten conjugated carbon-carbon double bonds connected at each end by an s-trans or trans bond to two identical, cyclic end groups, each possessing a conjugated keto group further cross-conjugated to another keto group or a double bond in a quinoid type structure.
