Definition:A furofuran that is (+)-sesamin in which both of the methylene acetals groups have been hydrolysed to afford the corresponding bis-catechol. Found as a product of (+)-sesamin in rat liver homogenate and also produced from sesamin by an enzyme (SesA) found in Sinomonas species. no. 22 growing on sesamin.
