Time-resolved resonance Raman spectroscopy was used to directly observe the reaction of the 2-fluorenylnitrenium ion with guanosine to produce a C8 intermediate species. Comparison of the Raman spectra with results of density functional theory calculations indicates the C8 intermediate forms two CN conjugated bonds in ring 1 of the guanosine moiety.
