    The P(1) member of the rotational manifold of the 6a10 transition in the 1B3u (nπ) state of pyrazine shows intermediate level structure and quantum beats in its decay. The P(2) member already shows a fast component. The effect of nuclear spin on the relative magnitude of the fast component is shown by partial deuterium substitution.
