Radiation Induced Molecular Phenomena In Nucleic Acids: A Brief Introduction

  • Manoj K. Shukla
  • Jerzy Leszczynski
Part of the Challenges and Advances In Computational Chemistry and Physics book series (COCH, volume 5)

Abstract

A brief elucidation of focus of the current volume is provided. It has been pointed out that a cohrent strategy incorporating both theoretical and experimental approaches is needed to study the molecular building blocks of nucleic acids. These investigations will help enriching our understanding of behavior of genetic materials. A brief description of available theoretical and experimental methods in exploring intrinsic and extrinsic properties of genetic molecules and the essence of the book is presented in this introductory chapter

Keywords

Nucleic Acid Bases Ultrafast Nonradiative Deactivation Excited State Radiation Induced DNA Damage Proton Transfer
