Electron Transfer Reactions from the First Excited Singlet State of a Polymethine Cyanine Dye
Photoactivated electron transfer reactions are of great importance for possible applications in the chemical storage of solar energy. However, whereas such reactions are very efficient “in vivo” in natural photosynthesis [1, 2], they appear to be less efficient “in vitro” [3–7].
