Electron transfer processes from the molecular to the cellular length scales

Date Do, 02.07.2015 - Do, 02.07.2015
Time 16.30
Speaker Dr. Spiros Skourtis, University of Cyprus and University of Freiburg, Germany
Location EPF Lausanne, CH G1 495
Program Electron transfer reactions are ubiquitous in biology and chemistry and are central to the molecular electronics and energy materials technologies. Biological electron transfer mechanisms are particularly rich, ranging from tunneling to thermally activated hopping. I give a review of recent trends in the theory and simulation of biomolecular electron transfer rates, focusing on the role of electronic-coupling and energy level fluctuations. I also discuss electron-transport pathway control over length scales that range from the small-molecule to the cellular level.
