Abstract:

Some pivotal aspects of the contemporary treatment of electrochemical kinetics for one-electron redox couples are outlined, and some commonalities with homogeneous-phase electron transfers are pointed out. Two illustrative examples of the interplay between theory and experiment are briefly discussed specifically to the relation between the rates of electrochemical and homogeneous-phase processes, and to the recognition and elucidation of dynamical solvent effects.
