  • In restoration of colour layers, the selection of the most appropriate retouching binder is a very important step that may have a crucial impact on materials durability. As different weather conditions can have versatile influence on stability of colour layers, we determined the effect of ageing on carefully selected samples of binders (Tylose, Klucel, ammonium caseinate, gum arabicum, fish and skin glues and some other synthetic binders) as well as on several binder-pigment combinations (the pigments in combinations being cinnabar, green earth and smalt). The samples were subjected to accelerated ageing tests in climatic chambers. In these tests the temperaturemore » and the relative humidity were daily oscillating between - 20 deg. C and 50 deg. C and 50% to 90%, respectively, for a period of one month. Then the samples were exposed to UV and visible light generated by a metal halide lamp for a month. The differences in microstructure before and after ageing were determined by optical and scanning electron microscopy, while the ageing of the organic structures in binders was investigated by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) microscopy.« less
  • This paper compares the photocatalytic activity of eleven porphyrins with variation of the pH of the electrolyte from 1 to 13 and stabilization of the remaining parameters of the system. Etioporphyrin II (EP), octaethylporphyrin (OEP), and tetra phenylporphyrin (TPP) were synthesized according to methods previously described. Pigment films were applied on platinum (Pt 99.99) polished substrates 11 mm in diameter in a vacuum of 10/sup -//sub 6/ torr by thermal sublimation. A table presents the averaged maximum and minimum values of the PP-pH, PC-pH and pH, at which they were reached for the complexes TPP and OEP. For the complexesmore » EP and porphyrin with a cyclopentane ring the dependences are cited. The results obtained show that the photoactivity of the pigments obtained in the zone of working pH values of the electrolyte in which the parameters of pigmented electrodes are optimum for a given research or technical problem can be varied within wide limits by directed synthesis of porphyrins with definite donor-acceptor properties of the substituents in the ring of the molecule, modification of the ring structure itself, and selection of the metal contained in the complex.« less
  • We have numerically investigated the effect of an underdamped intra-pigment vibrational mode on an exciton's quantum coherence and energy transfer efficiency. Our model describes a bacteriochlorophyll a pigment-protein dimer under the conditions at which photosynthetic energy transfer occurs. The dimer is modeled using a theoretical treatment of a vibronic exciton, and its dynamics are numerically analyzed using a non-Markovian and non-perturbative method. We examined the system's response to various values of the Huang-Rhys factor, site energy difference, reorganization energy, and reorganization energy difference. We found that the inclusion of the intra-pigment vibronic mode allows for long-lived oscillatory quantum coherences tomore » occur. This excitonic coherence is robust against static site-energy disorder. The vibrational mode also promotes exciton transfer along the site-energy landscape thus improving the overall energy transfer efficiency.« less
