Extended Data Fig. 1: Absorption spectra of 3 recorded in reduced scattering conditions.

From: Emergence of light-driven protometabolism on recruitment of a photocatalytic cofactor by a self-replicator

Extended Data Fig. 1

Visible absorption spectra of 3 (10 μM) in buffer (black), and in the presence of 13/14 (1.0 mM in 1; blue) and 16 (1.0 mM in 1; red). In order to show that the increased absorbance of 3 in presence of 16 is not related to scattering, this effect was minimized by recording these spectra in a different spectrophotometer (see Materials), using a wider slit (4 nm), a shorter light path (4.5 mm), and placing the cuvette immediately in front of the detector.
