Electron-transfer (ET) rates are measured by use of time-resolved EPR spectroscopy, involving photooxidation of nitroxyl radicals by a ruthenium bipyridyl complex. This permits acquisition of the fundamental characteristics of ET in solution. The method was used on two spin-labeled derivatives of bacteriorhodopsin, and is applicable to proteins, nucleic acids, and biological membranes.
