What vitamin refers to a family of related compounds called tocopherols?

Answer:

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a group of eight fat soluble compounds that include four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Vitamin E deficiency, which is rare and usually due to an underlying problem with digesting dietary fat rather than from a diet low in vitamin E, can cause nerve problems. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant protecting cell membranes from reactive oxygen species. Worldwide, government organizations recommend adults consume in the range of 7 to 15 mg per day.
