Bleaching of chlorophyllin, a water soluble copper containing porphyrin molecule, was investigated with regard to the potential role of active oxygen intermediate involvement. It was found that the bleaching was highly aerobic and also biphasic in nature. The aerobic photobleaching and the dark bleaching were effectively prevented by the addition of… CONTINUE READING
