EPR studies of 5-bromouracil crystal after irradiation with X-rays in the bromine K-edge region

Radicals induced in a single crystal of 5-bromouracil (BrUra) by synchrotron soft X-rays in the Br K-edge region (13.461-13482 keV) were investigated using the X-band EPR method. The crystal was irradiated at three peak energies in the absorption spectrum at room temperature or at 80K. A hydrogen abstraction radical derived from N1 atom of the pyrimidine ring was commonly observed for all of the energies used, though with some variation in quantity. Similar characteristics were also observed in the EPR signal for the off-K-edge low energy (13.42 keV) and when $$^{60}$$Co $$gamma$$-ray irradiation was employed as the reference. When irradiated at 80K, a much larger exposure (roughly 10 times) of soft X-rays was needed to obtain the same signal intensity as that observed at room temperature. EPR signals were not detectable with g-irradiation at liquid nitrogen temperature.

X-ray absorption spectra from single crystals of 5-Bromouracil were measured with the transmission mode in the energy range from 13.41 to 13.50 keV using the linearly polarized synchrotron radiation (SR). A characteristic resonance structure, consisting of four peaks, was recognized in the spectra in the Br K-edge region. The intensities of these peaks were strongly dependent on the crystal rotation about the normal of the crystal b-c plane, which was set perpendicular to the X-ray beam direction. (SR X-rays are polarized in the horizontal plane.) Molecular orbital calculations indicate that these resonance peaks are associated with the transitions from the 1s electron of Br to the Br-C molecular antibonding orbitals and to a shape resonance. The observed anisotropy of each photoabsorption peak might originate from the angular dependences of these molecular orbitals.
