Abstract It is evident that macromolecular interactions involve the transfer of energy. It has been proposed in the literature that the vibrational energy transfer is unlikely to occur "because the typical time scale of vibrational relaxation (in order of few pica seconds) is much shorter than that of the resonant intermolecular vibrational energy transfer". Here we present a concept, the so- called Resonant Recognition Model (RRM), which is based on a possibility of the resonant electromagnetic (EM) energy transfer between interacting molecules. The hypothesis of the possibility of EM energy transfer instead of the vibrational one can elucidate the nature of much faster molecular interactions (higher resonant frequencies).
