    Photodynamical ab initio simulations of the relaxation paths for adenine, guanine, cytosine, thymine, and uracil are reported. The simulations are based on a complete nonadiabatic surface-hopping approach using multiconfigurational wave functions. All bases share the basic conversion mechanisms with a different complexity of the photodynamics observed for purine and pyrimidine bases. Purines have the simpliest deactivation mechanism leading along a diabatic .pipi.* path directly and without barrier to the conical intersection with the ground state. For pyrimidines, the dynamics starts in flatt regions of the .pi.pi. surface due to coupling of several states prohibiting a clear formation of a single reaction path. Thus, their photodynamics is much richer and includes also .pi.pi. states. Implications of these findings are discussed for identifying possible singlet/triplet transitions and concerning the photodynamics of substituted pyrimidines as candidates for alternative nucleobases.
