Vibrationally averaged spin densities on muons and protons in the hydroxyl and ethyl radicals
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.
