Alkali metal anions are generated in ethers and amines by reaction 2 M = M + + M - Dewald R.R.; Dye J.L. J. Phys. Chem. 1964 , 68 , 121 Dye J.L. J. Chem. Ed. 1977 , 54 , 332 Spectral bands of solvated e - and M - in tetrahydrofuran (THF) at 25° C e - solv e - solv e - solv e - solv Metal dependent absorptions are observed for solutions of alkali metals in ethers and amines in addition to the infrared absorption observed for

Unformatted text preview: solutions in NH 3 . The latter is attributed to the solvated electron. • Relative intensity of absorption for e-solv to that of M-varies with metal and solvent; M-increases in less polar solvents and for lower atomic wt. metals • Use of borosilicate glass for studies can result in sodium contamination of other metals (Table 1)....
