Basing on the quantum transport formalizm a formula for the irreversible transfer of charged particles has been introduced by us recently. This formula is expected to be suitable for the theoretical description of the electron or hole transfer between quantum dots, other nanoparticles, molecules, and so on. We discuss shortly the main physical properties of the formula. We also demonstrate the use of the formula for the theoretical analysis of the electronic physical properties of some electrically conductive polymers.Keywords: Electron transfer, electron-phonon interaction, quantum nanostructures, transfer rate formula, polymer conductivity
