The current generally accepted structure of light-harvesting LH2 complexes from purple phototrophic bacteria conflicts with the observation of singlet-triplet carotenoid excitation fission in these complexes. In LH2 complexes from the purple bacterium Allochromatium minutissimum, a drop in the efficiency of carotenoid triplet generation is demonstrated,(More)
EPR characteristics of transient paramagnetic states photoinduced in isolated reaction centers of Rhodobacter sphaeroides R26 with intact electron transfer have been studied. It was demonstrated that the detected weak triplet state EPR signal belongs to the primary donor molecule and is populated via the conventional mechanism of radical pair S-T0 mixing.(More)
The values of absolute quantum yield phi of the formation of free ion-radicals during the illumination of alkohol solutions of chlorophyll alpha (Chl) and rho-benzoquinone (Q) at room temperature were obtained by the method of impulse photoconductance. With an increase of the dielectric constant epsilon of the solvent from approximately 6 to approximately(More)
Effect of p-benzoquinone concentration [Q] on the yield of ion-radicals during photooxidation of chlorophyll a with p-benzoquinone was studied by the method of impulse photoconductivity. It has been shown that in the studied range [Q] = 10(-6)--10(-1) M the relationship delta n ([Q]) has a bell-like shape with the maximum at [Q] approximately 10(-3) M. From(More)
It is shown that an increase deltasigma of electroconductivity of chlorophyll "a" (Chlalpha) solution in hexanole in the presence of n-benzoquinone (Q) under impulse illumination of solution is proportional to flash intensity: deltasigma=1(0,99+/-0,07). Dependence deltasigma on solution temperature is of an exponential character with the activation energy(More)
The effect of the dielectric constant epsilon of the solvent on the yield delta n of ion-radicals during photooxidation of chlorophy-l a with n-benzoquinone was studied by the method of impulse photoconductivity. It was shown that in the studied range of dielectric constant valve (epsilon congruent to 5-25) delta n monotonously increased with an increase of(More)
