|[en] Laser flash photolysis experiments were undertaken to investigate the interaction between stearic acid nitroxide spin probes and photoexcited merocyanine 540 (MC540) in dimyristoyl-L-alpha-phosphatidylcholine liposomes (membrane model). The measurements of the paramagnetic signal decay kinetics of four different spin-labelled stearic acids (n-DSA) show that the direct interaction between the dye and the probe is affected by the position of the nitroxyl group along the carbon chain. Laser flash photolysis results reveal a significant decrease in the MC540 triplet lifetime in the presence of n-DSA, the effect depending on the depth at which the nitroxyl moiety is localized in the bilayer. Previous results on the rate of disappearance of the electron spin resonance (ESR) nitroxide signal on continuous photolysis of the same systems do not show the same dependence on the localization of the nitroxyl moiety in the liposome. Although the MC540 triplet state seems to be implicated in the reaction process, the results suggest that ESR and laser flash experiments demonstrate two different kinds of mechanism.|
