Spin-control of the rate of electron transfer processes can also be detected in systems with very strong spin-orbit coupling such as in the ruthenium complex [Ru(bpy)3]2+, bipy = 2, 2′-bipyridine. From the influence of an external magnetic field, which was varied continuously up to the extremely high fields of 17.5 Tesla, the kinetic details of the very fast photooxidation of [Ru(bpy)3]2+ by methylviologen were determined quantitatively.
