Recent Advances in Electron and Proton Transfer Theories

  • The Skylight Room (Rm. 9100) at The Graduate Center, CUNY 365 5th Avenue New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Electron and proton transfers are among the simplest possible chemical reactions. We explore recent progress on the theory of these reactions, especially the subtle interplay of classical and quantum dynamics, as well as implications for fundamental processes in biological systems.
