    Nonadiabatic dynamics simulations performed at the state-averaged CASSCF method are reported for uracil. The dominant mechanism is characterized by relaxation into the S(2) minimum of .pi.pi.* character followed by the relaxation to the S(1) minimum of n.pi. * character. This mechanism contributes to the slower relaxation with a decay constant larger than 1.5 ps, in good agreement with the long time constants experimentally observed. A minor fraction of trajectories decay to the ground state with a time constant of about 0.7 ps, which should be compared to the experimentally observed short constant. A contribution of the relaxation proceeding via a ring-opening conical intersection was also observed. The existence of these two latter channels together with a reduced long time constant is responsible for a significantly shorter lifetime of uracil compared to that of thymine.
