Magnetic resonance and optical spectroscopic studies of carotenoids. Progress report, December 1, 1994--November 30, 1995
Description: The fundamental goals of this project are (1) to understand the role of a host matrix in the formation and decay mechanisms of carotenoid cation radical and dication and (2) to determine the special properties of carotenoids that enable them to serve as photoprotective agents in photosynthesis and as possible components in electron transfer processes. Results to date are discussed briefly. Work will continue as outlined in the original proposal with emphasis on using simultaneous electrochemistry EPR, and optical methods, variable temperature electrochemistry using microelectrodes and fast scans to examine the more unstable intermediates formed upon electrochemical oxidation of synthetically prepared carotenoids.
