Study of nucleic acid bases by the DADI method

  • R. Razakov

The DADI spectra of the nucleic acid bases adenine (I), guanine (II), Uracil (III), thymine (IV), cytosine (V), and 5-methylcytosine (VI) have been studied. It has been established that the samples of nucleic acid bases investigated are characterized by a specific pattern of the DADI spectra which reflects the nature of the molecular ion due to the structure of the given base and, in the case of M+ for (IV) and (VI) also the tautomeric state. The possibility has been shown of using the information obtained for the quantitative determination of (VI) in a mixture of bases.
