Acceleration effect of sulfides on photodegradation of carotenoids by UVA irradiation

The photodegradation of carotenoids by UVA irradiation in the presence of sulfides was investigated. The sulfides accelerated the photodegradation of carotenoids. A larger number of sulfur atoms of coexistent sulfides was more favorable to the acceleration effect of sulfides on the photodegradation...
