    The question arises as to whether different hydrocarbon bridges should give different electron-transfer rates. We answer this question on the basis of energetic and topological (interference) effects that can be gleaned from one-electron models. A discussion of model compound electron-transfer rates based on this interpretation is given. The approximations implicit in the periodic models used here (and in previous work) are carefully justified. © 1987 American Chemical Society.
