Overview

Charge Transfer in DNA: From Mechanism to Application / Edition 1

The past few years have witnessed intense research in this fascinating field as well as many controversial discussions. Now the time is ripe for a comprehensive book covering not only theoretical aspects, but also such mechanistic topics as principles and mechanisms of photoinduced charge injection, transport and trapping in DNA, sequence-dependent DNA dynamics, spectroscopic investigations of hole transport and much more.

From the contents:
* Principles and Mechanisms of Photoinduced Charge Injection, Transport and Trapping in DNA
* Sequence-Dependent DNA Dynamics: The Regulator of DNA-Mediated Charge Transport
* Excess Electron Transfer in DNA Probed with Flavin and Thymine Dimer Modified Oligonucleotides
* Dynamics of Photoinitiated Hole and Electron Injection in Duplex DNA
* Spectroscopic Investigation of Oxidative Hole Transfer via Adenine Hopping in DNA
* Chemical Probing of Reductive Electron Transfer in DNA
* Chemical Approach for Modulating Hole Transport in DNA
* Spectroscopic Investigation of Charge Transfer in DNA
* Spectroscopic Probing of Ultrafast Structural Relaxation and Electron Transfer Dynamics in DNA

Edited by Hans-Achim Wagenknecht, and written by renowned international authors, this book provides an excellent overview with high quality contributions, making it a "must-have" for everyone working in the field.

About the Author

H.-A. Wagenknecht studied chemistry in Freiburg and received his Ph.D. with Wolf-D. Woggon at the University of Basel. For postdoctoral studies he joined the group of Jacqueline K. Barton at the California Institute of Technology (Pasadena). In 2003, he completed his habilitation and is currently research group leader at the Technical University of Munich. His research interests are in the field of synthetic DNA modifications for electron transfer studies towards DNA-based assays and materials.
