Effects of weak magnetic fields on free radical recombination reactions

Abstract:

The radical pair mechanism is used to elucidate how applied magnetic fields that are weaker in strength than typical hyperfine interactions can influence the yields and kinetics of recombination reactions of free radicals in solution. The so-called low field effect is shown to arise from coherent superpositions of degenerate electron-nuclear spin states in a spin-correlated radical pair in zero field. A weak applied magnetic field causes these (zero-quantum) coherences to oscillate, leading t...
