Abstract

The carotenoid triplet states in the B880-RC antenna-reaction centre complexes of 4 different purple bacteria strains have been detected and identified according to the chain length of the corresponding carotenoid. The D and E values are roughly proportional to the inverse of the number of isoprenoid units.
