Abstract

Reaction Yield Detected Magnetic Resonance (RYDMR) has been shown to be a sensitive techniques to investigate recombination dynamics of radical ion pairs [1]. In this paper the techniques is applied to the radical pair P+H- in photosynthetic reaction centers (RCs) formed within picoseconds after optical excitation of the primatry donor 1P* by electron transfer (ET) to a bacteriopheophytin (H).
