NMR diffusion and nuclear Overhauser investigation of the hydration properties of thymine: influence of the methyl group

Abstract

The absence of preferential hydration in thymine and its lowest water accessibility with respect to uracil were evidenced by NMR diffusion and HOESY experiments; the hydration differences observed between these pyrimidine bases were attributed to the electronic rather than steric properties of the methyl group.
