About this Book

Electron transfer is the most important process to take place in natural and artificial chemical systems, playing a fundamental role, for example, in photosynthesis as well as in photography. Electron transfer reactions - oxidations and reductions - are involved in, among others, a variety of energy conversion processes, analytical methods, synthetic strategies, and information processing systems.

This five-volume work is the only comprehensive yet up-to-date reference on electron transfer processes. Following a foreword by Nobel prize-winner R. A. Marcus, renowned experts from all over the world provide an interdisciplinary overview of every aspect of electron transfer including theoretical-physicochemical backgrounds, latest analytical techniques to identify, monitor and measure the rate of electron transfer, utilizing electron transfer reactions in organic synthesis and catalysis, electron transfer in the gas phase or in special heterogeneous systems such as zeolites or sensitized electrodes. Other central issues are the study of biological systems and the biomimetic electron transfer processes in artificial supramolecular systems. Finally, a complete volume is dedicated to the application of electron transfer in molecular-level electronics, imaging processes and energy conversion.

Each chapter is complemented by numerous tables, formulae and illustrations providing an indispensable wealth of information. All references are cross-indexed throughout the work for easy access to this highly complex topic. Whether for quickly looking-up a keyword or as a thorough introduction to a special aspect, this is an essential handbook for everyone working in the field, from experts to postgraduates, from synthetic chemists, physicochemists or biochemists to research groups in material sciences.
