Discusses the Fermi Golden Rule in the Liouville-space approach for the study of intramolecular electron transfer rate for molecules in solution. Main lines of evolution of the research on the theory of intramolecular electron transfer in an external medium; Role of coupling among modes in the final electronic state on the rate of electron transfer.

    We have investigated electron transfer to O4+ in reactions with O2, NO, and Cs. We observe formation of O4 molecules that decay by predissociation and by direct dissociation. The kinetic energy release in dissociation as well as the nature of the dissociation products are determined. Evidence...
