Professor Waldeck will describe recent studies that investigate the effects of electron spin in electron transfer and electron initiated chemical reactions of supramolecular assemblies and at electrodes. Charge polarization and charge transfer in chiral molecules and assemblies is accompanied by spin polarization and spin transfer, because of the chiral induced spin selectivity (CISS) effect.
