Abstract

Melatonin was subjected to an oxidation to give 3-hydroxymelatonin. All spectroscopic data for this compound were collected. Ab initio calculations for both possible configurations were performed. X-ray data on N,O-diacetyl derivative of 3-hydroxymelatonin allowed the unambigous structure determination.
