Abstract

Photooxidation and photodephosphorylation of menadiol diphosphate by riboflavin and oxygen have been investigated as a model for biological quantum conversion. The details of the mechanism for this process in water have been studied experimentally. The results obtained suggest that the singlet oxygen generated by the triplet energy transfer from riboflavin is the photochemically reactive species which oxidizes and dephosphorylates menadiol diphosphate. The implication of this photoprocess as a bioquantum conversion model has been discussed.
