Energetic electron processes may exist in aprotic liquids due to the absence of C-H molecular bonds. Two liquids, molten sulfur and S2Cl2, have been investigated. Evidence for high field tunneling and a liquid phase Townsend alpha-process is found in liquid sulfur. Nanosecond pulse breakdown data provides additional evidence for liquid phase electron avalanche behavior in S2Cl2. The nanosecond breakdown statistics are compared for hydrocarbon as well as aprotic liquids.
