Broadly defined, Spin Chemistry deals with the effects of electron and nuclear spins in particular, and magnetic interactions in general, on the rates and yields of chemical reactions. It is manifested as spin polarization in EPR and NMR spectra and the magnetic field dependence of chemical processes. Applications include studies of the mechanisms and kinetics of free radical and biradical reactions in solution, the energetics of photosynthetic electron transfer reactions, enzyme catalysis, and various magnetokinetic effects, including possible biological effects of extremely low frequency and radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, the mechanisms by which animals can sense and use the Earth s magnetic field for orientation and navigation, and the possibility of manipulating radical lifetimes so as to control the outcome of their reactions.
AREAS TO BE COVERED INCLUDE
Chemical effects of electron and nuclear spins Effects of magnetic fields on chemical reactivity Chemically induced spin polarization (CIDEP & CIDNP) Radical pair chemistry and physics Magnetic isotope effects Para-hydrogen induced nuclear polarization Theory of Spin Chemistry Radical pairs in avian magnetoreception Photoreceptor proteins Photosynthetic systems
