Discusses the approximation of the electronic matrix element in the semiclassical expression for the rate of nonadiabatic electron transfer using perturbation molecular orbital theory. Electron-transfer efficiency for the contribution of electron transfer to the observed kinetics of ion-molecule collisions followed by electron transfer.

    Fullerenes tend to follow the isolated pentagon rule, which requires that each of the 12 pentagons is surrounded only by hexagons. Over the past decade many violations to this rule were reported for endohedral fullerenes. Based on the ionic model M3N6+@C2n6− and the orbital energies of the...
