About this Book

Comprehensive coverage of radical reactive intermediates in nucleic acid chemistry and biochemistry

The Wiley Series on Reactive Intermediates in Chemistry and Biology investigates reactive intermediates from the broadest possible range of disciplines. The contributions in each volume offer readers fresh insights into the latest findings, emerging applications, and ongoing research in the field from a diverse perspective.

The chemistry and biochemistry of reactive intermediates is central to organic chemistry and biochemistry, and underlies a significant portion of modern synthetic chemistry. Radical and Radical Ion Reactivity in Nucleic Acid Chemistry provides the only comprehensive review of the chemistry and biochemistry of nucleic acid radical intermediates.

With contributions by world leaders in the field, the text covers a broad range of topics, including:

  • A discussion of the relevant theory
  • Ionization of DNA
  • Nucleic acid sugar radicals
  • Halopyrimidines
  • Oxidative, reductive, and low energy electron transfer
  • Electron affinity sensitizers
  • Photochemical generative of reactive oxygen species
  • Reactive nitrogen species
  • Enediyne rearrangements
  • Phenoxyl radicals
