Double resonance spectroscopy of clusters of guanine with aspartic acid reveals geometries similar to patterns exhibited in DNA base pairs. In the spectral region of 32,800 cm(-1) to 35,500 cm(-1) we observe five isomers of guanine-aspartic acid clusters and assign their structures based on IR-UV hole-burning spectra and wave function theory calculations at… CONTINUE READING
