A group of prenol derivatives in which n in the general formula H–[CH2–C(CH3)=CH–CH2]n–OH
is greater than 4 and in which the residue that carries the hydroxy group is saturated, i.e. 2,3-dihydropolyprenols.
The collective term prenol should not be used without qualification to include dolichols since these are derivatives of @P04816@.
