Abstract

Photoinduced electron transfer ion photosynthetic reaction centres generates spin polarized magnetically coupled spin pairs which may be detected by fast transient EPR. The polarization transfer between successive radical pairs has been calculated and found to be in good agreement with the observed spectra in photosystem I (PS I).
