Previous studies (1) of the anomalous solutions formed by the alkali and alkaline earth metals in liquid ammonia clearly reveal that the various similar properties common to these solutions of a metal dissolved in a non-metal are due to the presence of a common negativ species, some form or "solvated" state of the electron, and are independent of the kind of metal present. The more important characteristic physical properties exhibited by these interesting metal-ammonia solutions are their common color, very high conductivity (2), anomalous volume expansion upon mixing (3), unique magnetic susceptibility (4), and similar thermochemical reactions (5) [TRUNCATED]
