Abstract

The difference in product selectivity observed between dibenzyl ketones and naphthyl esters in zeolites is due to the difference in spin of the radical pairs formed from these precursors. Heavy cations present in zeolites can enhance intersystem crossing between triplet and singlet geminate radical pairs. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
