Herein, graphene oxide nanoribbons (GONRs) were obtained from the oxidative unzipping of multi-walled carbon nanotubes. Covalent coupling reaction of 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl) carbodiimide hydrochloride (EDC) and N-hydroxy succinimide (NHS) with amine functional groups (-NH2) of the chitosan natural polymer (CH) was used for entrapping GONRs on the activated glassy carbon electrode (GCE/GONRs-CH). The nanocomposite was characterized by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), and field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM). In addition, the modification steps were monitored using FTIR. The nanocomposite-modified electrode was used for the simultaneous electrochemical determination of four DNA bases; guanine (G), adenine (A), thymine (T) and cytosine (C). The nanocomposite-modified GCE displayed a strong, stable and continuous four oxidation peaks during electrochemistry detection at potentials 0.63, 0.89, 1.13 and 1.27 V for G, A, T and C, respectively. The calibration curves were linear up to 256, 172, 855 and 342 μM with detection limits of 0.002, 0.023, 1.330 and 0.641 μM for G, A, T and C, respectively. The analytical performance of the GCE/GONRs-CH has been used for the determination of G, A, T and C in real samples and obtained a recovery percentage from 91.1%-104.7%. Our preliminary results demonstrated that GCE/GONRs-CH provided a promising platform to detect all four DNA bases for future studies on DNA damage and mutations.

The electrooxidation of thymine on screen-printed carbon electrodes was investigated utilizing different complementary instrumental approaches. The potential-dependent product profile was obtained by recording real-time mass voltammograms. Electrochemical flow cells with integrated disposable electrodes were directly coupled with mass spectrometry to facilitate a very fast detection of electrogenerated species. Thymine dimers were found at a potential of about 1.1 V in ammonium acetate (pH 7.0) and 1.25 V in ammonium hydrogen carbonate electrolyte (pH 8.0). Electrochemistry-capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry measurements revealed that two isobaric isomers of a dimeric oxidation product were formed. Separations at different time intervals between end of oxidation and start of separation showed that these were hydrated over time. An investigation of the pKa values by changing the separation conditions in electrochemistry-capillary electrophoresis-ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy measurements allowed for further characterization of the primary oxidation products. The results showed that both isomers exhibited two deprotonation steps. The oxidation products were further characterized by high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. Based on the obtained data, the main oxidation products of thymine in aqueous solution could most likely be identified as N(1)-C(5′) and N(1)-C(6′) linked dimer species evolving into the corresponding dimer hydrates over time. The presented methods for online characterization of electrochemically pretreated samples showed that not only mass spectrometric data can be obtained by electrochemistry-mass spectrometry but also further characterizations such as the investigation of product stability and the pH-dependent protonation or deprotonation behavior are possible. This is valid not only for stable oxidation products but also for intermediates, as analysis can be carried out within a short time scale. Thus, a vast amount of valuable experimental data can be acquired, which can help in understanding electrooxidation processes.

A new ab initio potential for the thymine dimer has been developed by using a combination of density functional theory and symmetry-adapted perturbation theory (DFT-SAPT). It has been shown that DFT-SAPT is in very good agreement with the reference CCSD(T) calculations performed for the hydrogen-bonded and stacked thymine dimers. Parallel global cluster optimizations have been carried out employing the new force field from the dimer to n = 50. It has been observed that the resulting cluster structures tend to form the building blocks of the crystal structure of thymine. This study therefore highlights the importance of dimer potentials to gain insights about the crystal structures.
