This paper reviews the latest developments in the field of spin chemistry with a particular focus on the effects of weak static and/or oscillating magnetic fields (typically smaller than the average hyperfine coupling) on radical recombination reactions. Anisotropic magnetic field effects and their significance in the debate about potential mechanisms controlling magnetoreception in birds are discussed.
