Abstract

Considerable effort has been directed recently toward measuring rate parameters for intramolecular redox reactions, typically involving electron transfer between a pair of transition metals linked by an organic bridge1-3. Such reactions offer important advantages over bimolecular processes for investigating detailed aspects of electron transfer, since the uncertainties concerning the energetics of forming the precursor complex are absent and the geometry of the transition state is relatively well-defined.
