Intramolecular electron transfer (ET) processes with the main energetic contributions coming from the solvent reorganization are investigated for a polar medium that exhibits dynamic disorder. Dynamic disorder provides a description of the anomalous relaxational behavior of correlation functions in complex glass-like systems, alternative to static disorder. In particular, the questions addressed are whether time-resolved observation of nonexponential ET in such a medium can readily distinguish experimentally between static and dynamic disorder and whether a contribution of intramolecular degrees of freedom to the ET can be identified by it.
