Paper Abstract

It was shown that exposure of the AZT derivative 5'-(1,4-dihydro-1-methyl-3- pyridinyl-carbonyl)-3'-azido-2', 3'-dideoxythymidine) (H2PyrAZT) in aqueous solution to pulsed laser emission ((lambda) equals 355 nm, pulse length 2 ns) gives rise to photoelectron ejection by stepwise two-photon absorption. Absorption spectra of the semioxidized radicals obtained in this reaction were determined. It was shown that the photolysis did not affect the azido group.
