    To explore the excited state dynamics of pyrimidine derivatives, we performed a combined experimental and theoretical study. We present resonant two-photon ionization and IR-UV double resonance spectra of 2,4-diaminopyrimidine and 2,6-diaminopurine. For 2,4-diaminopyrimidine, we observed only the diamino tautomer with an excited state lifetime bracketed between 10 ps and 1 ns. For 2,6-diaminopurine, we observed two tautomers with ns excited state lifetimes. We investigated the nature of the excited state of 2,4-diaminopyrimidine by means of multi-reference ab initio methods. The calculations of stationary points in the ground and excited states, minima on the S0/S1 crossing seam and connecting reaction paths show that several paths with negligible barriers exist, allowing ultrafast radiationless deactivation if excited at energies slightly higher than the band origin. The sub-nanosecond lifetime found experimentally is in good agreement with this finding.
