A new class of tocopherol (vitamin E) compounds, 5-tocopherylacetic acid derivatives, is presented. The synthesis and some unexpected properties of these compounds, such as relatively high thermal and chemical stability, are described and discussed in comparison with the labile 5a-halogeno-, 5a-alkoxy- or 5a-amino-substituted tocopherols.
