Replacement of the central Mg in chlorophylls by Ni opens an ultrafast (tens of femtoseconds time range) radiationless de-excitation path, while the principal ground-state absorption and coordination properties of the pigment are retained. A method has been developed for substituting the native bacteriochlorophyll a by Ni-bacteriochlorophyll a ([Ni]-BChl) in the light harvesting antenna of the core complex (LH1) from the purple bacterium, Rhodobacter (Rb.) sphaeroides, to investigate its unit… CONTINUE READING
