Is there a way to determine the colour and appearance of a large biomolecule?
If no one had seen chlorophyll, simply knew of its existence, would you, from its formula, be able to determine that it would be green by absorbing every other wavelength? really with any simple molecule/complex biomolecule? for that matter. And from that information, could you determine the colour change of the molecule during any given chemical reaction?
If so, please explain how to predict colour/colour-change of molecules using an explanation/equation. Thanks in advance! (:
