At s = 0 (TS), the electron transfer orbitals are symmetrically delocalized over two phenol rings. In contrast, at s = 0.8, the electron transfer orbitals are already localized on one of the phenol rings. It is clearly seen that the shapes of the localized orbitals LMO1 and LMO2 remain unchanged along the IRC path.|

|QUA_24074_sm_SuppFig5.tif||10064K||Supporting Information Figure 5. Comparison of electron transfer molecular orbitals: SONOs, the corresponding alpha orbitals, and beta orbitals. Because the alpha ET orbitals are not always found near the HOMOs, it becomes difficult to find the alpha ET orbitals. On the other hand, beta LUMOs often correspond to the electron transfer molecular orbitals. Thus, beta MOs are easy to use for the ET MO.|
