Ultrafast IR spectroscopy of the short-lived transients formed by UV excitation of cytosine derivatives

Author affiliations

Abstract

A strong infrared band at 1574 cm–1 is observed following 267 nm excitation of 2′-deoxycytidine (τ = 37 ± 4 ps) or 2′-deoxycytidine 5′-monophosphate (τ = 33 ± 4 ps); this band is provisionally attributed to an 1nNπ* state and is absent for cytosine.
