Abragam's double-commutator spin operator method is used to analyse: 1) electron coherence transfer by intermolecular dipolar interaction between spin-label radicals, and 2) longitudinal and transverse electron spin relaxation by rotational modulation of the Zeeman and nitrogen-hyperfine anisotropies of isolated nitroxide spin labels. Results compatible with earlier treatments by Redfield theory are obtained without specifically evaluating matrix elements. Extension to single-transition operators for isolated nitroxides predicts electron coherence transfer by pseudosecular electron-nuclear dipolar interaction, in the absence of intermolecular dipolar coupling. This explains earlier experimental findings that coherence transfer (specifically dispersion-like distortion of the EPR absorption line shape) does not extrapolate to zero at low concentrations of nitroxide spin labels.
