Publisher:Ohio State University
In this communication we discuss part of the energy level of dimeric Chlorophyll a and the way it relates to the absorption, fluorescence and Raman spectrum. The energy level diagram is based on the occupation of molecular orbitals of the dimer which arise if interaction occurs between highest occupied and lowest unoccupied orbitals of the monomer. The resulting dimeric energy level diagram is compared with that of the monomers and electronic Raman selection rules as well as lifetimes of excited states are discussed.
