Paper Abstract

The elucidation ofdetailed mechanisms ofultrafast events that occur inmolecular charge transferor reaction dynamics has been made possible by recent advances in spectroscopy techniques that use ultrashort laser pulse generation. Ultrashort laser pulses (100 femtoseconds duration 1 fs 10 ''s) allow to initiate selective photochemical processes (photoejection ofepithermal electron) and to obtain unique informations on the dynamics of primary steps ofbioradical reactions involving ultrafast electron or proton transfer. 1.
