Relaxation of excess electrons in a polar solvent Academic Article uri icon


  • We report the observation of the ultrafast relaxation of a quasifree electron to the localized excess electron state in water. Quasifree electrons were generated by photoionization of aqueous ferrocyanide solutions by the fourth harmonic of a mode locked Nd3+ laser. The rate of formation of the localized hydrated electron is 2 psec. 1972.
