    Time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy at ultralow kinetic energy was applied to liquid beams of NaI solutions in methanol and ethanol. Solvated electrons were formed from I ions in these solutions by charge transfer to solvent reactions. The vertical electron binding energies of the solvated electrons were determined for the first time. Both of the binding energies were found to be 3.10 ± 0.1 eV. This is in reasonable agreement with the dielectric continuum model of solvated electrons using the previously measured vertical binding energy of a hydrated electron. This indicates that the cavity radii of solvated electrons in water, methanol, and ethanol are approximately the same (0.33–0.35 nm).
