The determination of absolute electron affinities of the purines and pyrimidines in DNA and RNA from reversible reduction potentials.

Abstract

We report the reversible reduction potentials of the purines and pyrimidines of DNA and RNA. These were determined in dimethylsulfoxide using cyclic voltammetry. The absolute electron affinities have been determined from these reduction potentials by calibration with the absolute electron affinities for acridine and anthracene measured in the gas phase… (More)
