Origin of the bathochromic shift of astaxanthin in lobster protein: 2D electronic spectroscopy investigation of β-crustacyanin.

Abstract

We report on ultrafast spectroscopy study of β-crustacyanin, the carotenoprotein responsible for the coloration of the lobster shell. β-Crustacyanin is formed by two closely positioned astaxanthin molecules encapsulated in protein. The 2D electronic spectroscopy together with two-color pump-probe was applied to investigate the electronic structure, the… (More)
