Abstract

Electron transfer is one of the most fundamental processes in chemical and biological reactions. Photoinduced electron transfer and related chemical reactions in solution have been the subject of lively investigation. In this article, we first survey the theoretical and experimental problems related to this topic. In the second, we propose a new aspect of the role of the polar solvent mode played in the electron transfer reaction and try to resolve the above problems.
