Examining the role played by partial charge transfer in biology, this work offers a theroetical basis of the physics and chemistry of charge transfer complex formation, especially the function of excited states. It discusses drug interactions, highlighting interaction between different types of antibiotics and suggests ways for the synthesis of pharmaceutical products with reduced side effects.
