The possible radical species resulting from irradiation of the sugar groups in deoxyadenosine and cytidylic acid b are studied by the semiempirical technique INDO. The calculated unpaired spin density and hyperfine coupling constants are compared with experimental data. These comparisons and calculated relative energies of each species indicate that both molecules yield the same radical species upon irradiation.
