Chemical Science pick of the week

Chemical Science pick of the week

A collaborative study from the Mackenzie, Timmel and Aarts Groups has been highlighted as a 'Pick of the Week' in Chemical Science, the flagship journal of the Royal Society of Chemistry. The publication details the first realisation of confocal microscopy as a technique for probing the magnetic sensitivity of chemical processes in both solid and liquid state samples, including biological macromolecules. This article also reports the successful detection of orientationally dependent magnetic field effects in a singlet fission material. The work has implications for future studies into the chemical compass behaviour of both avian blue light photoreceptor proteins. more........
