# Python | List of tuples to dictionary conversion

• Last Updated : 01 May, 2019

Interconversions are always required while coding in Python, also because of the expansion of Python as a prime language in the field of Data Science. This article discusses yet another problem that converts to dictionary and assigns keys as 1st element of tuple and rest as it’s value.

Let’s discuss certain ways in which this can be performed.

Method #1 : Using dictionary comprehension

This problem can be solved using a shorthand made using dictionary comprehension which performs the classic Naive method of loops in single line inside a dictionary.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate``# List of tuple to dictionary conversion``# using list comprehension`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[(``'Nikhil'``, ``21``, ``'JIIT'``), (``'Akash'``, ``22``, ``'JIIT'``), (``'Akshat'``, ``22``, ``'JIIT'``)]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# using list comprehension``# List of tuple to dictionary conversion``res ``=` `{sub[``0``]: sub[``1``:] ``for` `sub ``in` `test_list}`` ` `# print result``print``(``"The dictionary after conversion : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :

The original list : [(‘Nikhil’, 21, ‘JIIT’), (‘Akash’, 22, ‘JIIT’), (‘Akshat’, 22, ‘JIIT’)]
The dictionary after conversion : {‘Nikhil’: (21, ‘JIIT’), ‘Akshat’: (22, ‘JIIT’), ‘Akash’: (22, ‘JIIT’)}

Method #2 : Using `dict()` + dictionary comprehension

Performs task similar to the above method, just the difference comes in the way of creation of dictionary. In the above method, dictionary is created using comprehension, here `dict `function is used for creation of a dictionary.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate``# List of tuple to dictionary conversion``# using dict() + dictionary comprehension`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[(``'Nikhil'``, ``21``, ``'JIIT'``), (``'Akash'``, ``22``, ``'JIIT'``), (``'Akshat'``, ``22``, ``'JIIT'``)]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# using dict() + dictionary comprehension``# List of tuple to dictionary conversion``res ``=` `dict``((idx[``0``], idx[``1``:]) ``for` `idx ``in` `test_list) `` ` `# print result``print``(``"The dictionary after conversion : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :

The original list : [(‘Nikhil’, 21, ‘JIIT’), (‘Akash’, 22, ‘JIIT’), (‘Akshat’, 22, ‘JIIT’)]
The dictionary after conversion : {‘Nikhil’: (21, ‘JIIT’), ‘Akshat’: (22, ‘JIIT’), ‘Akash’: (22, ‘JIIT’)}
