Let $\mathcal{A}$ be an abelian category with translation.
An object in the category of chain complexes modulo chain homotopy, $K(\mathcal{A})$, is homotopically injective if for every $X \in K(\mathcal{A})$ that is quasi-isomorphic to $0$ we have
Let
be the set of morphisms in the category of chain complexes $Ch_\bullet(\mathcal{A})$ which are both quasi-isomorphisms as well as monomorphisms.
Then
A complex $I$ is an injective object with respect to monomorphic quasi-isomorphisms precisely if
it is homotopically injective in the sense of complexes in $\mathcal{A}$; and
it is injective as an object of $\mathcal{A}$ (with respect to morphisms $f : X \to Y$ such that $0 \to X \stackrel{f}{\to} Y$ is exact).
Proposition For $\mathcal{A}$ a Grothendieck category with translation $T : \mathcal{A} \to \mathcal{A}$, every complex $X$ in $Ch_\bullet(\mathcal{A})$ is quasi-isomorphic to a complex $I$ which is injective and homotopically injective (i.e. QuasiIsoMono-injective).
For $\mathcal{A}$ an abelian Grothendieck category with translation the full subcategory $K_{hi}(\mathcal{A}) \subset K(\mathcal{A})$ of homotopically injective complexes realizes the derived category $D(\mathcal{A})$ of $\mathcal{A}$:
where $Q : K(A) \to D(A)$ and $Q|_{K_{hi}(A)}$ has a right adjoint.
It follows that for $D$ any other triangulated category, every triangulated functor $F : K(\mathcal{A}) \to D$ has a right derived functor $R F : D(\mathcal{A}) \to D$ which is computed by evaluating $F$ on injective replacements: for $R : D(\mathcal{A}) \stackrel{\simeq}{\to} K_{hi}(\mathcal{A})$ a weak inverse to $Q$, we have

The general notion of injective objects is in section 9.5, the case of injective complexes in section 14.1.
