Abstract : Spectroscopic experiments designed to better characterize excited-state interactions between oxygen and organic molecules (M) were performed. Data were recorded in both liquids and solid organic polymers. Problems of interest included (1) the effect of an applied magnetic field on the kinetics and yields of processes in the M-O2 photosystem, (2) the effect of changes in the M and O2 diffusion coefficients on both physical and chemical processes in the M-O2 photosystem, and (3) the effect of stabilizers used to inhibit polymer photodegradation on processes in the M-O2 photosystem.
