The assumptions, equations and several applications of a recently formulated theory of electron transfer reactions of solvated electrons are outlined. The relationship of the reorganization terms to those of ordinary electron exchange and electrochemical reactions is described, together with the role played by an effective standard free energy of reaction. Applications include prediction of conditions under which chemiluminescence might be found and description of conditions under which reactions might not be diffusion-controlled.
