Oxygen effects on the EPR signals from wood charcoals: experimental results and the development of a model.

Charcoals prepared from certain tropical woods contain stable paramagnetic centers, and these have been characterized by EPR spectroscopy in the absence and presence of oxygen. The EPR-detectable spin density has been determined, as has been the temperature- and frequency-dependence of the oxygen broadening of the EPR signal, which is orders of magnitude… CONTINUE READING
