Since the late 1940s, the field of electron transfer processes has grown enormously, both in chemistry and biology. The development of the field, experimentally and theoretically, as well as its relation to the study of other kinds of chemical reactions, represents to us an intriguing history, one in which many threads have been brought together. In this lecture, some history, recent trends, and my own involvement in this research are described.

Additional Information:© 1992 Imprimerie Royale. My acknowledgments are to my many fellow researchers in the electron transfer field, notably Norman Sutin, with whom I have discussed so many of these matters for the past thirty or more years. I also thank my students and post-doctorals, whose presence was a constant source of stimulation to me, both in the electron transfer field and in the other fields of research which we have explored. In its earliest stage and for much of this period this research was supported by the Office of Naval Research and also later by the National Science Foundation. The support of both agencies continues to this day and I am very pleased to acknowledge its value and timeliness here.
