Unformatted text preview: The porphyrin ring is host to the electronic states that participate in the interaction with light. Beers Law The spectrophotometer permits the measurement of absorption as a function of the incident wavelength. Note that chlorophyll appears green because it absorbs strongly in the blue and the red. We will be interested in examining the quantum mechanical underpinnings of absorption spectra.
