Abstract

Muon spin relaxation has been measured in longitudinal magnetic fields for Mu + CO and Mu + N2O reactions. The interpretation of the results for these small molecules, which are quite different than those obtained in larger molecule systems (e.g., Mu-ethyl and Mu-t-butyl radicals), are made with the phenomenological model for Mu-radical spin relaxation previously proposed. Proper fitting procedures are important in these cases and are discussed in the present paper.
