The electronic structures of the anti-HIV drug zidovudine (AZT) and antimalarial drug artemisinine have been investigated by UV photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS),MO calculations, and comparison with the spectra of related molecules. The analysis of their electronic structure is correlated with known biological activities.
