# Python | Convert Integral list to tuple list

• Last Updated : 11 Nov, 2019

Sometimes, while working with data, we can have a problem in which we need to perform type of interconversions of data. There can be a problem in which we may need to convert integral list elements to single element tuples. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension
List comprehension can be used as a shorthand method to solve this particular problem. In this, we iterate through the list and convert each integer element into a tuple object.

Output :

The original list : [1, 4, 6, 8, 9]
List after conversion to tuple list : [(1, ), (4, ), (6, ), (8, ), (9, )]

Method #2 : Using `zip() + list()`
This is the simplest method to perform this particular task. The `zip()` when applied to list of integers, it converts each element to tuple. It returns a zip object and hence it has to converted back to list using `list()`.

Output :

List after conversion to tuple list : [(1, ), (4, ), (6, ), (8, ), (9, )]
