Python | Convert tuple to adjacent pair dictionary
• Last Updated : 21 Nov, 2019

Sometimes, while working with records, we can have a problem in which we have data and need to convert to key-value dictionary using adjacent elements. This problem can have application in web development domain. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using `dict()` + dictionary comprehension + slicing
The above functionalities can be used to solve this problem. In this, we just slice alternate parts of tuple and assign corresponding values using dictionary comprehension. The result is converted to dictionary using `dict()`.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Convert tuple to adjacent pair dictionary``# using dict() + dictionary comprehension + slicing`` ` `# initialize tuple``test_tup ``=` `(``1``, ``5``, ``7``, ``10``, ``13``, ``5``)`` ` `# printing original tuple``print``(``"The original tuple : "` `+` `str``(test_tup))`` ` `# Convert tuple to adjacent pair dictionary``# using dict() + dictionary comprehension + slicing``res ``=` `dict``(test_tup[idx : idx ``+` `2``] ``for` `idx ``in` `range``(``0``, ``len``(test_tup), ``2``))`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"Dictionary converted tuple : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :
```The original tuple : (1, 5, 7, 10, 13, 5)
Dictionary converted tuple : {1: 5, 13: 5, 7: 10}
```

Method #2 : Using `dict() + zip()` + slicing
This performs this task in similar way as above method. The difference is that it uses` zip() `instead of dictionary comprehension to perform task of pairing key-value pair.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Convert tuple to adjacent pair dictionary``# using dict() + zip() + slicing`` ` `# initialize tuple``test_tup ``=` `(``1``, ``5``, ``7``, ``10``, ``13``, ``5``)`` ` `# printing original tuple``print``(``"The original tuple : "` `+` `str``(test_tup))`` ` `# Convert tuple to adjacent pair dictionary``# using dict() + zip() + slicing``res ``=` `dict``(``zip``(test_tup[::``2``], test_tup[``1``::``2``]))`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"Dictionary converted tuple : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :
```The original tuple : (1, 5, 7, 10, 13, 5)
Dictionary converted tuple : {1: 5, 13: 5, 7: 10}
```
