cis-stilbene is a photochemical prototype for cis-trans olefinic photoisomerisation. In our recent work, we show that this process maintains coherence throughout the reaction path, even in liquid-phase. This has interesting implications for the evolutionary favourability of this reaction in biology.
We introduce a highly sensitive methodology that captures key vibrational signatures using surface-engineered, plasmonic, metal nanoparticles spontaneously encapsulated into protein liquid droplets allowing us to unveil the inner workings of biomolecular condensates in a droplet-by-droplet manner.
