Electron-induced ionization of the tetrahydrofuran molecule, the commonly used surrogate of the DNA sugar-phosphate backbone, is theoretically described in this study within the 1st Born approximation. Comparisons between theory and recent experiments are reported in terms of doubly and singly differential cross sections.
