Offers a clear understanding of the mechanisms and applications of electron transfer Written by one of the top scientists in the field, this comprehensive book presents the central theories and mechanisms in electron transfer and provides an overview of several systems in nature where electron transfer is important. It also covers modern green applications dealing with electron transfer. Beginning with an introduction to the subject, Electron Transfer: Mechanisms and Applications continues with a chapter covering the Marcus Theory of electron transfer. Other chapters look at: photosynthetic reaction center models; electron donor–acceptor dyads; supramolecular electron transfer; and the effects of metal ions on photoinduced electron transfer. Also discussed are topics such as photoredox catalysis; hydrogen storage; catalytic reduction of O2; catalytic oxidation of H2O; the production of hydrogen peroxide from water and oxygen as a solar fuel; and the production and usage of hydrogen peroxide as a solar fuel in seawater. The book finishes with a chapter on Photosystem II Mimic. Provides a systematic overview of the fundamental concepts and the powerful applications of electron transfer Describes mechanisms and applications of electron transfer inspired by electron-transfer processes in photosynthesis Written by an international expert in the field Electron Transfer: Mechanisms and Applications is an invaluable resource for graduate students and researchers working in the field in academia and industry.
