DFT/TDDFT study on the photodissociation mechanism of the original monascus red and orange pigments.

Abstract

The weak photostability has to some extent restricted the wide utilization of monascus pigments in food industries, and their photobleaching mechanism is unclear yet. Density functional theory and time-dependent density functional theory at B3LYP/6-311+G(d,p) level have been performed to optimize the geometries of ground states, single and triplet excited… (More)
