An unexpected oscillation of signal intensities has been noticed in the muon spin precession spectra of various muoniated free radicals. It is important to explore the phenomenon, not only because it can affect the detection of radicals, but also because its investigation may provide information on the mechanisms involved in muoniated radical formation.
