In the present study, we propose a spin exchange In ﬁnal form 8 February 2018 model for singlet ﬁssion. In the spin exchange model, spins are exchanged by the exchange interaction Available online 9 February 2018 between two electrons. Our analysis with simple spin functions demonstrates that singlet ﬁssion is possible by spin exchange. A necessary condition for spin exchange is a variation in exchange interac- tions. We also adapt the spin exchange model to triplet fusion and triplet energy transfer, which often occur after singlet ﬁssion in organic solids. 2018 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. 1.
