Do electrons prefer to visit planes or spheres? Reorganization energies for intramolecular electron transfer involving a 3D acceptor (C60) and a 2D acceptor (NIm; see scheme) have been determined. Comparison of reorganization energies for the intra- versus intermolecular electron transfer has provided, for the first time, valuable insight into the intrinsic reorganization energies relating to different molecular shapes.
