About the book
Whether an enzyme reacts or a lithium battery charges, the core of these events is a similar reaction: redox chemistry. All in all, this chemical reaction presents a number of mysteries and questions depending on the viewpoint of the study. As a point of difference, the dynamics of the same particle, the electron, are expressed in such diverse ways the formalisms and equations. The formality connected with the electron transfer coupled to proton is prominent in an enzyme, while the quantification of conductance determines the formalism in molecular electronics, with the Landau Zener formalism. While band formalism in semiconductors predominates, it is not present in battery electrodes. That, then, suggests a means of reconciling or confronting the various methods of electron transfer. Building a unifying model, based on Marcus' theory (which earned him the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1992) seems to be an almost impossible task. It's physically feasible, right? Anti-realist?
