Kinetic Aspects of Bimolecular and Supramolecular Excited-State Electron Transfer Processes

  • Franco Scandola
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 237)


General photochemical concepts related to the redox properties of electronically excited states are recalled. The factors that influence the kinetics of ground- and excited- state electron transfer reactions are discussed in some detail. Trends of photochemical research towards the study of supramolecular systems and their relevance to photocatalytic problems are briefly discussed.
