A molecular theory of the dynamic solvent effects on an outer-sphere adiabatic electron transfer reaction is presented. The theory properly includes the role of the microscopic correlations present in a dense dipolar solvent in the dynamics of an electron-transfer reaction. The theory predicts that the translational modes of the solvent, hitherto neglected in most discussions on electron-transfer reactions, can significantly enhance the rate of an adiabatic electron-transfer reaction.
