    We define a general set of effective solvent coordinates for reactions in solution that should be especially well suited for polar solvents. No specific functional form is assumed for the variation of charges with motions along or orthogonal to the reaction coordinate, and as a consequence the...

    We have performed the first direct pump-probe transient-absorption measurements on the near-infrared (IR) band of the equilibrated aqueous solvated electron. The pump pulse was centered at 780 nm. The absorption spectrum of the excited state is observed to be red-shifted relative to the...

    The role played by solvent molecular flexibility in the dynamics of the solvation of an initially energetically excited excess electron in water is investigated using nonadiabatic molecular dynamics simulation and a classical flexible water model. It is found that the effect of flexibility on...
