Abstract

The linear dichroism of monolayers of plastoquinone-9, plastoquinone-3 and α-tocopherol quinone has been measured. The angle between the transition moments and the plane of the solid support was found to lie between 24° and 28° for the investigated prenylquinones. The possible orientation of quinone rings in a monolayer state has been discussed.
