AbstractWe present a summary of recent advances in the understanding of the UV photophysics of the isolated DNA base adenine, emphasizing a discussion of the mechanisms behind the ultrafast relaxation following excitation to the pipi* band. Drawing on our femtosecond time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy experiments, we discuss differences in the ultrafast relaxation of adenine and 9-methyladenine and consider the relative merits of the various proposed mechanisms.
