The isomerization process of glyoxylic acid (GA) conformers and their complexes with a water molecule were studied in a low temperature argon matrix. The research target was to understand how starting conformation and complexation affects the near-IR (NIR) induced conformer interconversion. The most stable GA conformer (Tc) is characterized by an… CONTINUE READING
