Magnetic field effect (MFE) on pyrene-N,N-dimethylaniline (Py-DMA) exciplex system in benzene-acetonitrile (Bz-ACN) mixtures of varying bulk permittivity (ε) has been studied. The MFE has been wavelength resolved over the emission band of the exciplex along with the measurement of lifetime. The data establishes the concept of formation of two types of exciplexes (Relaxed and Un-relaxed) at higher bulk value of permittivity. At lower value of permittivity when solvent reorganization energy is
