Abstract

Driving force effects on electron transfer rates in molecular donor–bridge–acceptor systems have been investigated extensively in the past. Significantly less well explored are tunneling energy effects in long-range charge transfer. These effects have to do with the energy differences between the donor/acceptor energy levels and those of the bridging molecules that are in between the two reactants. This contribution summarizes some recent advances in this research field.
