Characterization of CEA was carried out through spectroscopic studies using ultraviolet absorption molecules. Factor affecting the absorption properties of purified CEA such as, pH, polarity, effect of solvent perturbation and pH titration have been studied, the results indicates that there are different effects of these factors on the CEA spectrum. The pH titration of purified CEA shows that the amino acid tyrosine is located on the surface of the CEA. This study was aimed to elucidate the spectroscopic properties of purified CEA using spectroscopic techniques, Uvana FTIR.
