Abstract

In this work we present a review of our groups recent work of our group and that of others related to ab initio studies involving DNA base dimers and complexes. We present recent calculations, as well as some relevant experimental investigations concerning excess electron attachment to these systems. In addition to covalent-bound electron attachment, we discuss formation of dipole-bound anions, solvated electron systems, and the experimental-theoretical comparisons that are currently available. Finally, we will discuss possible future avenues of research in this area.
