      Fluctuations in biological and bioinspired electron-transfer reactions 

      Skourtis, Spiros S.; Waldeck, D. H.; Beratan, David N. (2010)
      Central to theories of electron transfer (ET) is the idea that nuclear motion generates a transition state that enables electron flow to proceed, but nuclear motion also induces fluctuations in the donor-acceptor (DA) ...
