electron back-transfer

Thermal @I03146@ of @E02257@ @E02011@ restoring the donor and acceptor in their original @O04365@. In using this term one should also specify the resulting @ET07026@ of the donor and acceptor. This term is preferred to @B00575@.
  1. It is recommended to use this term only for the process restoring the original @ET07026@ of donor and acceptor.
  2. Should the forward @E02011@ lead to @C00999@, electron back-transfer will result in @C00998@.
