The non-adiabatic multiphonon theory of electron transfer provides a complete description of nuclear tunnelling and final-state excitation phenomena, which modify the classical Marcus theory. Ultrafast electron-transfer processes, where the electronic process competes with medium-induced vibrational relaxation, cannot be handled by the conventional theory, being amenable to description in terms of quantum-mechanical models.
