Abstract

The vibrational frequencies of the singlet excited state of Mg-substituted myoglobin and relative absorption probabilities were determined by fluorescence line-narrowing spectroscopy. These spectra contain information on the structure of the excited state species, and the availability of vibrationally resolved spectra from excited state biomolecules should aid in elucidating their structure and reactivity.
