(a) For an electron donor/acceptor pair at 298 K, and Use mathematical software to estimate the value of the reoryanization energy. (b) For an electron donor/acceptor pair at 298 K, and The standard reaction Gibbs energy changes to when a substituent is added to the electron acceptor and the rate constant for electron transfer changes to Assume that the distance between donor and acceptor is the same in both experiments and estimate the values of and
In this question, we have an electron transfer reaction which occurs at 298 K. In this given reaction, by using any mathematical software, we need to calculate the reorganisational energy of this reaction.
