The individual absorption spectra of various ionic and tautomeric species of some derivatives of nucleic-acid components have been determined by computer handling of the summary spectra of these compounds measured at different pH values. These individual spectra have been decomposed into separate bands represented by log-normal curves and corresponding to different electronic transitions. Using the parameter system calculated earlier for the molecules of the vitamin B6 family, the calculation of the electronic spectra and electronic structure of various ionic and tautomeric species of the molecules studied have been carried out in the π-electron approximation. These properties have also been calculated by the all-valence electronic method CNDOS. The calculated results correlate well with both approximations and with our experimental spectral data. The localization of the molecular electronic excitation studied on the transition to the S1 and T1 states is considered in connection with the reactivity in these states.
