Superexchange in the fast lane – intramolecular electron transfer in a molecular triad occurs by conformationally gated superexchange

Author affiliations

Abstract

Photoinduced electron transfer via hopping is generally considered to have a stronger temperature dependence than electron transfer via superexchange. However, in this work, an opposite trend of the temperature dependence is observed. This unexpected result is rationalized by considering the specific geometrical and electronic structure of the Ru-bis(terpyridine) photosensitizer.
