Abstract

In this study we present for the first time site (N-1-H / N-3-H) and bond (N-H / C-H) selectivity of if formation in 1-methylthymine, 3-methyluracil and deuterated thymine (C positions) triggered by potassium molecule collisions. By comparing the H loss of these molecules with H loss in thymine and uracil and setting the energy one can predict site and bond selectivity in these set of molecules.
