Cells and tissues contain both electron acceptors and donors.
Because tissues contain a large number of electron acceptors, photobleaching of HPD in vivo may be affected by reactions of this type.
Some photooxidizable substrates and model electron acceptors can increase the photobleaching efficiency of HPD substantially.
2] is lower and Mn oxides may be the favoured electron acceptors, making this a region of [Mn.
2] be favoured as an electron acceptor but also (a) [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] would be favoured as an electron acceptor and denitrification would proceed at a faster rate, and (b) the obligate aerobic process of nitrification would cease.
37] probably formed a charge transfer with the electron acceptor PCBM and the generated carriers consequently induce a sharp increase in the current density.
Following the excitation of ITX and subsequent intersystem crossing to produce the excited stale triplet of ITX, an electron transfer probably occurs from ITX to the electron acceptor, MA.
However, DMMA, which is a better electron acceptor, should produce an even faster polymerization, but it does not (2).
These electron carriers are able to generate anodic current in the presence of terminal electron acceptors (under anaerobic conditions) which is the exceptional example (Kim et al.

The second volume switches focus towards photonic materials and devices and includes 12 chapters discussing such topics as organic nonlinear optical crystals and single-crystalline thin films, organic semiconducting thin films, organic random lasers, nonlinear optical properties of organometallic and metalloorganic compounds, nonlinear optical responses and photoinduced electron transfer process in phthalocyanines and related compounds, liquid crystal diffractive optical elements, magnetoresistance and spin effects in organic light-emitting diodes, and photoinduced transfer between electron donors and fullerenes as unique electron acceptors.
Of relevance to nitrogen microbiology, oxygen, nitrate, and nitrite are terminal electron acceptors.
Energy yield comes out of a physiological strategy known as aerobic denitrification that uses both oxygen and nitrate simultaneously as terminal electron acceptors (Moir, Wehrfritz, Spiro, & Richardson, 1996; Richardson, 2000; Robertson & Kuenen, 1990).
2], PbS, fullerenes, and other electron acceptor species possessing semiconductor properties have been embedded into polyp-phenylenevinylene, polythiophene, polyaniline, and polypyrrole matrixes [6-9].
