Abstract

The magnetic sublevels of the lowest excited triplet state of riboflavine, deazaflavine, FMN, FAD, and alloxazine, as well as two flavoproteins have been investigated by optical detection of magnetic resonance. Lifetimes, relative steady-state populations, relative radiative rate constants, as well as zero-field splitting parameters are re-ported for riboflavine and deazaflavine. This double resonance technique has been used to observe and characterize phosphorescence from flavodoxin and yeast hemoglobin and is shown to be a powerful technique for investigating the triplet electronic structure of weakly luminescent biological systems.
