Conical intersection in a bilirubin model : a possible pathway for phototherapy of neonatal jaundice
Phototherapy of neonatal jaundice involves Z-E-isomerisation around an exocyclic double bond in bilirubin. Our results of a CASSCF study on dipyrrinone, a bilirubin model, show a conical intersectionExpand

Estimation of electron transfer parameters from AM1 calculations.
The utility of AM1 calculations for estimation of the electron-transfer parameters lambda'(v) (the enthalpy part of the Marcus internal reorganization energy) and H(ab) (the electronic couplingExpand

Primary photoprocess in vision: minimal motion to reach the photo- and bathorhodopsin intermediates.
According to time-resolved spectroscopic measurements, the initial step of the photoreaction of rhodopsin occurs with a time constant of approximately 200 fs. The whole or a part of the retinalExpand

Electron transfer in bis(hydrazines), a critical test for application of the Marcus model
Electron transfer in the cations of bis(hydrazines), bridged by six different π‐systems (compounds 1–6) is studied using ab initio and density functional theory (DFT) methods. Expand

Initial step of the photoprocess leading to vision only requires minimal atom displacements in the retinal molecule
Abstract The primary processes of vision and the light driven proton pump of some bacteria involve cis – trans or trans – cis isomerization, respectively, of a retinal molecule. The time constant ofExpand

Using 1,3-butadiene and 1,3,5-hexatriene to model the cis-trans isomerization of retinal, the chromophore in the visual pigment rhodopsin
The short polyenes 1,3-butadiene and 1,3,5-hexatriene are used to model the cis-trans isomerization of the protonated Schiff base of retinal (PSBR) in rhodopsin (Rh). We employed the complete activeExpand
