Radiation Induced Molecular Phenomena in Nucleic Acids - A Comprehensive Theoretical and Experimental Analysis
Dir gefällt dieses Produkt? Sag's weiter!
Comprehensive theoretical and experimental analysis of UV-radiation and low energy electron induced phenomena in nucleic acid bases (NABs) and base assemblies are presented in this book. NABs are highly photostable; the absorbed energy is dissipated in the form of ultrafast nonradiative decay. This book highlights the possible mechanisms of these phenomena which is important for all living species and discusses technical challenges in exploration of these processes.
Discusses the mechanism of the ultrafast nonradiative decay processes in Nucleic Acid Bases
Investigates the design of photostable atoms and molecules
Utilizes theory and experimental techniques to examine photophysical behaviour in nucleic acids
Describes the computational methods used to study excited state properties of Nucleic Acid Bases and DNA

"The editors ... succeed in creating a balanced portrait of their interdependent efforts in the book's 21 chapters. ... the book contains a number of excellent individual reviews that will benefit workers interested in excited states in small DNA model systems and in the mechanisms by which low-energy electrons induce strand breaks. There are excellent references to the recent and older literature throughout the book that will be valued by established and new workers in the field."
