- ... Methyl esters of polyunsaturated fatty acids were found to quench triplet-excited riboflavin (³Rib) in efficient bimolecular reactions with rate constants, as determined by laser flash photolysis, linearly depending upon the number of bis-allylic methylene (from 1 to 5). Deactivation of ³Rib is predicted by combining the experimental second-order rate constants k₂ determined for acetonitrile/water ...

- ... Pyridoxal phosphate (PLP) was found to deactivate triplet-excited riboflavin (Rib) in aqueous solution with a deactivation constant of 3.0 ± 0.1 × 10⁸ L mol–¹ s–¹ at 25 °C. Likewise, PLP was found to quench the fluorescence emission of ¹Rib* with ¹kq = 1.0 ± 0.1 × 10¹¹ L mol–¹ s–¹ as determined by steady state fluorescence. The rather high quenching constant suggests the formation of a ground stat ...
