Abstract

Einfluss des LUMO-Niveaus: Chemisch modifizierte DNA-Moleküle mit 2-Desoxyuridin(dU)-Derivaten unterschiedlicher LUMO-Energie wurden synthetisiert, um die Elektronentransfer-Effizienz zu beeinflussen. Durch das Anordnen von Thymidin, den dU-Derivaten und 5-Fluor-2-desoxyuridin in der Reihenfolge ihrer LUMO-Niveaus konnten Effizienz und Direktionalität des photoinduzierten Elektronentransports in DNA reguliert werden.
