  1. 1. Photosynthetic Oxygen Evolution - EPR studies of the manganese cluster of photosystem II

    Författare :Sindra Peterson Årsköld; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; S2 state; second cycle; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism; S0 state; light-adaptation; pulsed EPR; methanol; relaxation; microwave power saturation; S-cycle; Oxygen-evolving complex; Water-oxidizing complex;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, a new electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) signal from photosystem II is presented. The signal is shown to originate from the S0 oxidation state of the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC). LÄS MER

  2. 2. The Fate of Electronically Excited States : Ultrafast Electron and Energy Transfer in Solvated Donor-Acceptor Systems

    Författare :Staffan Wallin; Leif Hammarström; Jan Davidsson; Eric Vauthey; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; Electron transfer; Energy transfer; Anisotropy; Porphyrin; Ruthenium tris-bipyridine; Superexchange; Supramolecular; Donor-Acceptor; Charge transfer state; S2 state; Ultrafast; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : Processes where a molecule absorbs visible light and then disposes of the excess energy via electron/energy transfer reactions have an important role both in nature (e.g. in photosynthesis) and in many technical applications (e.g. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Effects of Protons and Small Alcohols on the Oxygen-Evolving Complex of Photosystem II

    Författare :Paulina Geijer; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; EPR; pH; methanol; S3; S2; S0; YZ; Mn cluster; Oxygen-evolving complex; S-states; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism;

    Sammanfattning : Higher plants and algae use oxygenic photosynthesis to convert solar energy to reducing equivalents and chemical energy. The ultimate electron donor to oxygenic photosynthesis is water. Oxidation of water to oxygen occurs in the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) in Photosystem II (PSII). The OEC is composed of four Mn atoms, Ca2+ and Cl-. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The Oxygen Evolving cycle in Photosystem II studied with EPR Spectroscopy at different pH and Temperature

    Författare :Susan F Morvaridi; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Kemi; Chemistry; Naturvetenskap; Temperature; Natural science; pH; EPR; S cycle; Photosystem II;

    Sammanfattning : PSII catalyses the light-induced water splitting process which leads to electron transfer through the thylakoid membrane and formation of energy rich molecules. Several redox components including a Mn4Ca, an amino acid residueYZ, two special Chl molecules P680, two Pheo and two quinone molecules participate in this process. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Non-Invasive Multidimensional Imaging Applied on Biological Substances

    Författare :Anders Kaestner; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Nyckelord :Microwave propagation; Tomography; Polarimetry; Frequency estimation; Anisotropic media; Wood; Muscles; Paper; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents the research and development of a microwave in-strument to capture tomographic information from the inner structure ofthe biological sample. The principle of the instrument is based on theanisotropy introduced by the fibres in materials such as wood and musclesin terms of information regarding changes in the fibre structure. LÄS MER
