charge transfer complex

Also found in: Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

charge trans·fer com·plex

1. a complex between two organic molecules in which an electron from one (the donor) is transferred to the other (the acceptor); subsequent transfer of a hydrogen atom completes the reduction of the acceptor; such complexes are generally highly colored and may be so observed;
2. a network of hydrogen bridges at the catalytic center of certain proteases.

Therefore, it is of much importance and interesting to study the charge transfer complexes of drugs with various I or I-acceptors for qualitative and quantitative analysis of drugs in their pure form as well as in pharmaceutical formulations[15].
Furthermore, solid charge transfer complexes were synthesized and characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy.
