Interaction of excess electrons with water and nucleobases

Time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy is used to study the dynamics of excess electrons in water cluster anions, liquid water microjets, and iodide-nucleobase complexes.  The water cluster and liquid jet work aims to resolve a long-standing controversy regarding the relaxation mechanism of electronically excited hydrated electrons.  The iodide-nucleobase experiments represent a new research direction, time-resolved radiation chemistry, which focuses on the dynamics initiated when low energy electrons interact with nucleobases, nucleosides, and nucleotides.
