Magnetic field effect on singlet oxygen production in a biochemical system

Chem Commun (Camb). 2005 Jan 14;(2):174-6. doi: 10.1039/b413489c. Epub 2004 Nov 11.

Abstract

The yield of singlet oxygen sensitized by chemically modified, carotenoidless bacterial photosynthetic reaction centres and the ensuing oxidative damage are both shown to be magnetic field-dependent.
