Dissociative excitation of adenine (C5H5N5) into excited atomic fragments has been studied in the electron impact energy range from threshold to 400 eV. A crossed beam system coupled to a vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) monochromator is used to study emissions in the wavelength range from 90 to 200 nm. The beam of adenine vapor from a stainless steel oven is crossed at right angles by the electron beam and the resultant VUV radiation is detected in a mutually orthogonal direction. Excitation of the H Lyman series, the strongest features in the spectrum, is considered in detail.
