Monte Carlo simulations of the effects of weak magnetic fields on the recombination of interacting radical pairs undergoing free diffusion in solution have been performed, with the aim of determining the influence on the low field effect of the magnetic dipolar coupling between the radicals. The suppression of singlet-triplet interconversion in the radical pair by the dipolar interaction is found to be pronounced at magnetic field strengths comparable to the hyperfine interactions in the… CONTINUE READING
