This is an account of the research activities of our group during the first two years of its existence. First results from our work on proton-coupled electron transfer and long-range charge tunneling reactions are presented. This includes a hydrogen-bonded cation–anion pair in which a proton-coupled electron transfer process can be phototriggered and followed by simple optical spectroscopic means, as well as a series of rigid rod-like donor-bridge-acceptor molecules which we use to investigate physical phenomena associated with the tunneling of electrons or holes. A unifying feature of this research is the use of light (photons) to induce proton and/or electron transfer.
