The deoxy-myoglobin (deoxy-Mb)/carbonmonoxy-myoglobin (Mb-CO) UV-vis assay is the principal method used for quantifying the rates of CO release from CO-releasing molecules (CO-RMs) that might possess therapeutic benefits. Some issues emerge when the Mb-CO assay is utilized for testing CO-RMs with novel structures, which are comprehensively discussed here for the first time. Two methods for processing raw UV-vis spectroscopic data generated from the assay are presented in this paper.
