Paper Abstract

By 1H NMR spectroscopy it was established that under increase ofcytosine concentration in anhydrous DMSO-d6 from 5 up to 35 mM the doublet signal of its amino group becomes gradually transformed into singlet one. This observation is interpreted as a result of lowering of the barrier of amino group turn due to central symmetrical self-association of the base through two equivalent intermolecular H-bonds N1H...O=C2, which is likely to weaken pπ-conjugation of lone electron pair ofthe amino nitrogen atom with the ring π-electron system. The cytosine N1-methylsubstitution was shown to impact amino group in the similar way as self-association.
