Creator:
Szent-Gyorgyi, Albert, 1893-1986
Isenberg, Irvin
Date:
15 October 1960
Description:
In this study, Szent-Gyorgyi and Isenberg examined the charge-transfer behavior of indole, and speculated about why indole and some indole derivatives (such as serotonin and tryptophan) readily form charge-transfer complexes with substances like riboflavin, even though indole's structure does not predict such reactivity.
