ligand is associated with ferric. It is used to prepared I?-hematin which is indistinguishable from malaria pigment (hemozoin) by spectroscopy and crystallography. The changes occurring in hematin in 0.1M NaOH have been studied by the microscope to investigate the morphology, the resonance Raman (RR) spectroscopy to probe the structural and conformational, and the Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR/FTIR) to examine the functional group and hydrogen bonding in hematin product was reported. The image of hematin product in 0.1M NaOH demonstrated that there are two color areas, black and brown.
