I know that proteins strongly absorb UV at 280 nm. I have 3 questions:
- What happens to proteins when they absorb UV?
- Do different proteins absorb different wavelengths ?
- Does water absorb UV as nearly as well as the proteins?
As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or specific expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, see the FAQ for guidance.
