Photochemical and photoelectrochemical behaviour of chlorophyll a-smectite conjugate

Photochemical and photoelectrochemical behaviour of chlorophyll a-smectite conjugate Chlorophyll a was adsorbed onto smectite to form chlorophyll-smectite conjugate, which became photostable against light illumination.

Abstract

Chlorophyll a was adsorbed onto smectite to form chlorophyll-smectite conjugate, which became photostable against light illumination. The chlorophyll-smectite conjugate caused the photoreduction of nitro blue tetrazolium, NBT, through the formation of superoxide anion, and the conjugate retained the photosensitive activity even after 20 hour illumination. Furthermore, the conjugate deposited on SnO2 electrode caused electron transfer under light illumination. The anodic photocurrent rose at −200 mV versus Ag/AgCl electrode (KCl saturated) and reached a maximum level at approximately +100 mV. The photocurrent spectrum was in good agreement with the absorption spectrum of chlorophyll-smectite conjugate in an aqueous solution and the quantum efficiency was approximately 1% at 670 nm.
