Abstract
Intramolecular ring-ring interactions in the model compounds, 8-methoxypsoralen-CH2O(CH2)n-adenine (MOPCH2OCnAd, n=2, 3, 5, and 6) in which 5' position of 8-methoxypsoralne (8-MOP) is linked by different polymethylene bridges to N9 of adenine, have been investigated by hypochromism measurements. Efficient ring-ring stacking interactions have been observed in MOPCH2OC2Ad (7) from the percent hypochromism (%H) and fluorescence spectra of the models and a reference molecule. The 8-methoxypsoralen-adenine systems have shown stronger ring-ring stacking interaction than the psoralen-adenine systems.
