Thymine is a very common THYMINE derivative. It is a kind of
base which compounds DNA, and DNA is the carrier of genetic
information. So THYMINE solution is a typical sample in research of the
action of the emitted qi on matters.
In the experiment, we used an ultraviolet-visible spectrometer to
check the ultraviolet absorption spectrum of the samples, meanwhile we
used a thermovision to test the temperature change.
The experimental sample was water solution of thymine with
acidity PH11, concentration lOkg/ mm3 . The sample was divided into
two groups the experimental group (2 tubes) and the contrast group (2
tubes) . In order to scientifically distinguish the true or false of the
experimental phenomena, we selected the samples very strictly and dealt
with them very carefully. In the process of the experiment (48 hours),
we followed the track of the ultraviolet absorption spectrum and checked
them once every 14 hours (See Table 1). It indicated that the sample
at ordinary temperature is very stable.
Experimental Method: The spectrum and temperature of the
sample one hour before receiving the emitted qi was firstly tested. Then
it received the emitted qi at a far distance for about one hour. Finally we checked the temperature of the sample which had received the emitted
qi and checked its ultraviolet absorption spectrum.
The rate of increase of the two samples reached 24.2% and 11.5%
respectively. At the point where the characteristic wavelength was 270
nm, the absorption increase of the two samples reached 9.8 % and 5.1%
respectively. The corresponding temperature changes are listed in Table
1. The rate of increase of ultraviolet absorption intensity is called hyperchromic effect, it is because variation appears in a molecular structure.
