Abstract

The behaviour of geminate triplet benzyl radicals pairs in anionic micelles has been investigated as a function of added lanthanide ions (Ln3+) in the presence and absence of a laboratory field. Although the percent of geminate radical coupling is insensitive to the nature of added Ln3+ in the absence of a laboratory field (except for a salt effect), in the presence of a laboratory field the percent cage is significantly affected by paramagnetic Ln3+ ions, but not by diamagnetic Ln3+ ions or by Eu3+.
