Abstract

The temperature dependence of the rate of electron transfer is analyzed in the framework of a molecular theory presented recently, characterized by decoupling the total solvent reorganization energy into two contributions featuring reorganizations of permanent dipoles as well as solvent density. The inclusion of the temperature dependence of liquid density reorganization can give rise to a maximum in the Arrhenius coordinates for electron transfer in the inverted region and for exothermic reactions with small activation barriers as well.
