The copious photochemistry of 2,6-diaminopurine: Luminescence, triplet population, and ground state recovery.

9H- and 7H-2,6-Diaminopurine (26DAP) photoinduced events in vacuum were studied at the MS-CASPT2/cc-pVDZ level of theory. The S1 1 (ππ* La ) state is initially populated evolving barrierless towards its minimum energy structure, from where two photochemical events can take place in both tautomers. The first is the return of the electronic population to the ground state via the C6 conical intersection (CI-C6). The second involves an internal conversion to the ground through the C2 conical intersection (CI-C2). According to our geodesic interpolated paths connecting the critical structures, the second route is less favorable in both tautomers, due to the presence of high energy barriers. Our calculations suggest a competition between fluorescence and ultrafast relaxation to the electronic ground state via internal conversion process. Based on our calculated potential energy surfaces and experimental excited state lifetimes from the literature, we can infer that the 7H- must have a greater fluorescence yield than the 9H-tautomer. We also explored the triplet state population mechanisms on the 7H-26DAP to understand their long-lived components observed experimentally.
