Orbital mediated tunneling is a tip to substrate electron transfer process mediated by the electronic orbitals of an adsorbate. While a number of theoretical treatments for this process have been presented, few tests of the predictions have been made. In this talk we will present data on the line shape and temperature dependence of orbital mediated tunneling in cobalt(II) phthalocyanine and discuss it the context of sequential and resonant electron transfer processes. The temperature range from 100 to 300K will be considered.
