The photoionization characteristics of a naphthol chromophore covalently tethered to a few different amino acids and small peptides are investigated. To isolate the chromophore from the biological molecules the linkage between them is constructed from saturated alkyl chains of up to 12 carbons in length. Experimental results are compared with those of previous studies that explored the photoionization of macromolecules.
