Excited State Energy Transfer Pathways in Photosynthetic Reaction Centers . 3 . Ultrafast Emission from the Monomeric Bacteriochlorophylls


Ultrafast singlet excited state energy transfer occurs from the monomeric bacteriopheophytin (H) and bacteriochlorophyll (B) chromophores to the primary electron donor or special pair (P) in bacterial photosynthetic reaction centers. Because of rapid quenching of the singlet excited state of B by energy transfer to P, 1B emission has not previously been… (More)
