Résumé

Le spectre d'absorption, les caractéristiques luminescentes et photochimiques de la riboflavine sont présentés. L'interprétation des données expérimentales d'autres auteurs sur la décomposition photochimique de l'eau sensibilisée par la riboflavine est critiquée. Il faut distinguer deux cas: dans les réactions photochimiques qui ont lieu en l'absence de donneurs d'électrons ajoutés, la portion ribosique de la riboflavine se comporte en donneuse d'électrons et elle est détruité. Par contre, en présence de donneurs d'électrons adjoutés, la riboflavine agit comme véritable photosensibilisateur et n'est pas consumée dans l'ensemble de la réaction photochimique.
