The oxidation of water and the production of O2 during photosynthesis occur at a manganese-containing catalytic site within photosystem II. A number of questions remain regarding water substrate interactions and the nature of the other ligands to the catalytic site. Through the use of difference spectra, FTIR spectroscopy is being exploited in the mid-IR range to address these questions. Here, we investigate the isotope-induced effects in three regions of the mid-IR range S2/S1 difference...[Show more]
