Analysis by a combination of high-performance liquid chromatography, absorption, fluorescence, circular dichroism, mass and nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry has been used to investigate the structure of chlorophylls. Here, we show several spectroscopic and redox properties of unique chlorophylls, e.g., chlorophylls d and f, divinyl chlorophyll a, and [Zn]-bacteriochlorophyll a, and compare them with those of the well-known chlorophyll a and bacteriochlorophyll a.
