Formation of water-chlorophyll clusters in dilute samples of chlorophyll-a in ether at low temperature

Reimers, Jeffrey R; Cai, Zheng-Li; Kobayashi, Rika; Ratsep, Margus; Freiberg, Arvi; Krausz, Elmars


Simultaneously measured absorption (ABS) and magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) spectra of the Q-bands of chlorophyll-a (Chl-a) in ether over 150-186 K reveal that the species that forms at low temperature is a chlorophyll hydrate rather than a diether complex. We have recently proposed a new assignment paradigm for the spectra of chlorophillides which, for the first time, quantitatively accounts for a wide range of observed data. Observations performed at low temperature in ether have...[Show more]
