Description

The body creates nitric oxide (NO) for signaling. Currently researchers have limited ways to deliver precisely known quantities of NO to an experiment. Using UV-Vis spectroscopy it is possible to observe NO binding to cobalt tetraphenylporphyrin (CoTPP), therefore allowing the quantity of NO in the solvent to be measured. Currently we are working to obtain the spectral data curves that will then be analyzed using computer software and a method under development. The analysis of spectral titration data for a variety of solvents will yield a table of values that inform researchers the exact concentration of NO in varying solvents.
