Assemblies of ionic zinc chlorins assisted by water-soluble polypeptides.

Abstract

Artificial chlorophyll-peptide complexes were prepared by mixing ionic chlorophyll derivatives and oligopeptides in aqueous media containing a small amount of organic solvent. The pigment-peptide complexes provided chlorophyll assemblies showing a sharp red-shifted Qy absorption band concomitant with giant circular dichroism signals. The polypeptide… (More)
