Abstract:

An objective of the research performed on this grant is the understanding of the detailed behavior of a variety of electron transfer processes. Theories were developed for a the rate of electron transfer between a reagent in one liquid phase and another in a second immiscible liquid or polymer, b the rate of long distance electron transfer in proteins, c charge transfers spectra in frozen media, d scanning tunneling microscopy stm of molecular adsorbates, and e analysis of models of solvents used in computer simulations of electron transfer, particularly examining the error incurred by their common neglect of the electronic and vibrational contributions of the solvents dielectric response.
