This is a simulation of the of the first step in vitamin D photosynthesis, the ring-opening of provitamin D to form previtamin D. The simulation was done using the time-dependent density functional theory surface hopping method as implemented in TURBOMOLE.

White background indicates that the molecule is in the ground state, purple background symbolizes excitation by UV light, yellow background indicates that the molecule is in the first excited singlet state. The total simulation time of this movie is 2.6 ps.
