1 August 2021 Investigating the low-frequency vibrations of chlorophyll derivatives using terahertz spectroscopy
Author Affiliations +
The terahertz absorption spectra of sodium magnesium chlorophyllin (Chl-Mg-Na) and sodium copper chlorophyllin (Cu-Chl), two major members of the chlorophyll derivative family, have been measured in the range 0.2−3.0 THz (6.6−100 cm-1), at room temperature. Additionally, surface-enhanced Raman scattering spectroscopy was used to supplement data in the higher frequency range. The capability of terahertz spectroscopy for quantitative characterization of Chl-Mg-Na intermolecular vibrations was investigated and the sensitivity of the 1.82-THz feature with degree of hydration by changes in the molecular environment was examined. For Cu-Chl derivative, a broad feature was observed around 1.8 THz which currently hinders clear Cu-Chl identification and quantification.
