We have found fair agreement between the free enthalpies of solvated electrons as computed from experimental data and from theoretical models. The apparent anomalies in the entropy of the ammoniated electron are due to a looser packing in the first solvation layer relative to the pure solvent, this effect being larger at a lower temperature. Some spectroscopic results can be rationalized in terms of the thermodynamic data.
