Abstract

The transfer of a proton from one group to another
is probably the most common and fundamental reaction
in all of chemistry, second only to electron
transfer. As experimental techniques have advanced,
it has become feasible to study aspects of the proton
transfer process that were previously inaccessible. It
is possible to investigate the reaction in the gas phase,
free of complicating solvent effe~ts.l-T~h e time frame
accessible to experimental inquiry has been shortened
dramatically in recent years, even into the picosecond
scale. 4-8
