Ultrafast Aqueous Bimolecular Acid-Base Proton Transfer: from Direct Exchange to Sequential Hopping

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We explore the aqueous neutralization reaction between a photoacid ROH and carboxylate bases OOCR' and show that proton transfer in loose complexes (ROH..H2O..–OOCR') occurs through intermediate water molecules in a sequential von Grotthuss type fashion.
