Region for which the rate constants increase with increasing exergonicity
of the reaction in plots relating rate constants for electron transfer
or quantities related to it, with the standard Gibbs energy for the reaction
This region is predicted by the Marcus
theory for outer-sphere electron transfer
for the case of
in the Marcus equation.
