A new ground state single electron donor for excess electron transfer studies in DNA

Chemical Communications, 2009, 24, 3583-3584 published on 08.05.2009
A new photoinducible single electron donor has been developed, which, when linked to thymidine, is shown to be an efficient ground state reducing agent in DNA; the donor can be activated at wavelengths where standard DNA does not absorb.
