Quantitative light absorption data of the neutral free flavosemiquinone are reported. It is shown that the visible range of the spectrum of the radical is drastically dependent on the solvent. The spectra of the neutral blue flavosemiquinone are compared with those of the blue flavoprotein radicals and conclusions are drawn concerning the environment of the protein-bound flavosemiquinone. The stabilization of the neutral blue flavosemiquinone through N(5)-alkylation and/or n-complex formation… CONTINUE READING
