Photolysis of 5 -Bromouracil and Some Related Compounds in Solution


The steady sta te photolysis of 5-bromouracil (BU) in aqueous solution has been studied as a function of wavelength, pH , tem perature, and hydrogen-donor concentration. U nder all conditions studied, the prim ary reaction is shown to be C-Br bond cleavage followed by abstraction from the hydrogen-donor to give uracil and H B r. A t pH > 12 further products… (More)
