The interaction of experiment and theory clearly delights John Alberya colleague and friend to whom this chapter is dedicated. That interaction is the principal theme of this contribution. The examples given below are taken from the experiences of my research group in a number of fields in, or related to, reaction kinetics: (1) high-resolution spectroscopic studies and intramolecular vibrational energy migration; (2) long-range electron transfer (ET) in proteins; (3) ET in a broad range of systems; (4) ion, atom and group transfers; (5) photosynthetic reaction center ET; (6) solvent dynamics and the chemists' delayed use of Kramers' theory; (7) unimolecular reaction rates and products' distribution of rotational-vibrational quantum states; (8) unimolecular reaction rates in clusters; (9) vibrational adiabaticity and reaction coordinates; (10) graph theory and additivity in delocalized (aromatic) molecules.
