Klaus Schulten. Magnetic field effects on radical pair processes in chemistry and biology. In J. H. Bernhard, editor, Biological Effects of Static and Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Fields, pp. 133-140. MMV Medizin Verlag, Munich, 1986.

SCHU86C Chemical and biological photoprocesses which involve reactions between paramagnetic molecules can be affected by magnetic interactions, in particular, by external magnetic fields. Examples discussed are photoinduced electron transfer reactions, the primary process in photosynthesis and other radical pair reactions. In this article we provide experimental evidence for magnetic field effects on well characterized molecular systems and explain the physical origin of these effects.
