The effects of additives on the recombination efficiency and exit rates of micellized benzyl radicals have been studied by steady-state CIDNP, steady-state product analysis, and time-resolved optical absorption techniques. The results indicate that the efficiency of triplet geminate pair recombination increases monotonically as the micellar volume increases. Aggregation numbers of SDS micelles were deduced as a function of additive concentration from CIDNP measurements and were found to be consistent with literature values.
