[Corollary 4.1, serpe]

Lemma 19.14.4. Let $\mathcal{A}$ be a Grothendieck abelian category. Let $R$, $F$, $G$ be as in the Gabriel-Popescu theorem (Theorem 19.14.3). Then we obtain derived functors

\[ RG : D(\mathcal{A}) \to D(\text{Mod}_ R) \quad \text{and}\quad F : D(\text{Mod}_ R) \to D(\mathcal{A}) \]

such that $F$ is left adjoint to $RG$, $RG$ is fully faithful, and $F \circ RG = \text{id}$.

Proof. The existence and adjointness of the functors follows from Theorems 19.14.3 and 19.12.6 and Derived Categories, Lemmas 13.31.6, 13.16.9, and 13.30.3. The statement $F \circ RG = \text{id}$ follows because we can compute $RG$ on an object of $D(\mathcal{A})$ by applying $G$ to a suitable representative complex $I^\bullet $ (for example a K-injective one) and then $F(G(I^\bullet )) = I^\bullet $ because $F \circ G = \text{id}$. Fully faithfulness of $RG$ follows from this by Categories, Lemma 4.24.4. $\square$
