comment Working out the electric field from applied energy
I worked it out, but given that the bond length is of course tiny, I'm getting a field of orders of magnitude 10^11. The energy is about 20 milli-electronVolts, which are multiplied by the joule conversion (equal to the charge on the electron) and divided by the charge, to get the quantity as 20 milliJoules/Coulomb - which is then divided by the bond length to get the large value. Does that sound far off?

comment Working out the electric field from applied energy
Alright, so if the energy difference between respective sites is constant dE from molecule to molecule, and there is 1 electron being observed, we use the charge of one electron for dE, the bond length for r and the set dE?

comment Electron hopping among molecules - Marcus equation
I did that in my previous model where I simply had magnitudes of electron hopping rates around a molecule. I compared all these magnitudes one by one against the total. It turned out that the transfer rate dictated by the bond goes only one way, from n to n+1, while being unable to tell me what a probability for the travel in opposite direction would be.
