A review with \textgreater66 refs. Several examples are presented for inner sphere and outer sphere electron transfer in the reactions between electron rich organometallic main group or transition element compds. and electron deficient unsatd. substrates. Emphasis is placed on various steric and electronic aspects of (multiple) coordination between metal centers and the substrate as a requirement of consequence of intra- and intermol. single electron exchange. The examples include thermal and photoinduced electron transfer processes which result in various new stable dia- and paramagnetic follow-up products. on SciFinder(R)
