Abstract

The observations of the residual isotope effect for muonated radicals are discussed using calculations on the hydroxyl and ethyl radicals. The origins are partly due to the non-linear increase of the hyperfine coupling constants with increase in bond length, although a significant contribution comes from the anharmonicity of the molecular vibrations.
