Relevance of Polaron/Soliton-Like Transport Mechanisms in Cascade Resonant Isomeric Transitions of Q1D-Molecular Chains


Article Preview

Our recently proposed quantum approach to biomolecular isomeric-conformational changes and recognition processes, additionally supported by biomolecular resonant recognition model and by quantum-chemical theory of biomolecular non-radiative resonant transitions, is hereby extended to cascade resonant transitions via close intermediate participating isomeric states - which might be related to polaron/soliton-like energy and charge transport mechanisms in Q1Dmolecular chains, whose relevance is explored in this paper.
