Abstract: X-ray absorption/emission spectroscopy (XAS/XES) at the N K-edge of iron protoporphyrin IX chloride (FePPIX-Cl, or hemin) has been carried out for dissolved monomers in DMSO, dimers in water and for the solid state. This sequence of samples permits identification of characteristic spectral features associated with the hemin intermolecular bonding. These characteristic features are further analyzed and understood at the molecular orbital (MO) level based on the DFT calculations.
