Abstract

[Book summary] 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 A unique compilation on the cutting edge of our understanding, Radical and Radical Ion Reactivity in Nucleic Acid Chemistry provides an unparalleled resource to student and professional researchers in such fields as organic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and physical chemistry, as well as the industries associated with these disciplines.
