60Co γ-ray induced peroxidation of DNA in aqueous solution
Abstract γ-Radiolysis of N 1 -substituted derivatives of cytosine gives hydroperoxides which are stable enough in neutral solution to be considered as models for the fast-decaying component of theExpand

EXCITED STATES OF DNA AND ITS COMPONENTS AT ROOM TEMPERATURE—III. SPECTRA, POLARISATION AND QUANTUM YIELDS OF EMISSIONS FROM ApA AND poly rA*
Abstract— Corrected normalised emission spectra from 300 to 480 nm and their polarisation are reported for neutral and poly rA at room temperature. Yields are 4 times (ApA) and 6 times (poly rA)Expand
