Abstract:

The optical absorption spectrum obtained by pulse radiolysis of pure liquid dimethylsulphoxide includes a broad intense band in the near IR with lamdamax or 1500 nm. This band is assigned to solvated electrons with a half-life of 15 plus or minus 2 nsec. The lamdamax of the solvated electron correlates better with dimethylsulphoxides inability to solvate negetive ions than with its dielectric constant, which is 48. Author
