Simple diffusion model of cage effect

Full Text:


On the assumption of the initial Gaussian distribution of the inter-radical distances the dependence of the radical combination probability in a solvent cage on the viscosity and temperature was derived. The dependence describes the published data correctly and may be used for the initial inter-radical distances estimation in different radical pairs.
