Dipole-Induced Effects on Electron Transfer

Posted by gamry on June 3, 2015

A new article has been published to the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) entitled “Dipole-Mediated Rectification of Intramolecular Photoinduced Charge Separation and Charge Recombination”.

Controlling charge transfer at a molecular scale is critical for efficient light harvesting, energy conversion, and nanoelectronics. Dipole-polarization electrets, the electrostatic analogue of magnets, provide a means for “steering” electron transduction via the local electric fields generated by their permanent electric dipoles.

Cyclic voltammetry was conducted on the demonstration using the Gamry Reference 600 Potentiostat/Galvanostat/ZRA equipped with a three-electrode cell.
