Abstract: We have used the diffusion and rotational Debye-Smoluchowski diffusion-reaction equation to evaluate the chemical kinetics of the intramolecular isomerization reaction of the uncharged radical pairs, influenced by magnetic field effects. A description of isomerization reaction of the uncharged radical pairs demands recognition of both their mutual rotational diffusion and drift under the influence of an external magnetic field. The results indicate that the incorporation of the magnetic field torque effect is manifested in the derived kinetic equations owing to which it influences the isomerization reaction rate. Three possible cases concerning the mutual relative magnitude of the chemical and rotational relaxation processes are discussed.
