Abstract

The steady-state emission spectra of 5-(1-pyrenyl)-modified pyrimidine and 8-(1-pyrenyl)-modified purine nucleosides in water at different pH values provide important information about the acidity or basicity of photochemically generated DNA base radicals which are key intermediates in DNA-mediated charge transport processes.
