Intermediates in the oxidation of a dihydropyridine derivative of AZT related to AIDS dementia, studied by nanosecond laser photolysis.


Radicals of the AZT derivative 5'-(1,4-dihydro-1-methyl-3-pyridinylcarbonyl)-3'-azido-2',3'-dideo xythymidine) were obtained on exposure of this compound in alkaline aqueous solution to pulsed laser emission of lambda = 355 nm and pulsewidth 2 ns FWHM. The radical formation was shown to be due to photoelectron ejection from the pyridine group following two… (More)
