3) The Born equation, proposed in 1920, has been modified in various ways in order to get a single equation that can express the experimental ionic solvation energies. In recent years, the so-called mean spherical approximation has often been used in treating ion solvation. In the MSA treatment, the Gibbs energy of ion solvation is expressed by   b ÀNA z2 e2 1 DGsv ¼ 1À 4pe0 Á 2ðr þ d s Þ er where r is the radius of a spherical ion and ds ¼ rs/ls, rs being the radius of a spherical solvent molecule and ls the Wertheim polarization parameter, obtained by the 2 relation ls ð1 þ ls Þ4 ¼ 16es [12].

If such molecules are placed between the two plates of a capacitor as a vapor (or as a dilute solution in a nonpolar liquid), they are oriented by the electric field. Then, the orientational polarization and the induced polarization occur simultaneously, as described above. If er is the relative permittivity of the vapor, there is a relationship   er À 1 4pNA m2 ¼ ð1:3Þ aþ 3Vm 3kB T er þ 2 where kB is the Boltzmann constant.

6 sÀ1) by metal ion [18a]. The average lifetimes of solvents in the primary solvation shell also vary widely because they are of the order of (1/k). 6) < DMF (8) $ DMSO (8) < HMPA (15) [18b]. The values in parentheses show the lifetimes in nanoseconds. This shows that the lifetime increases with the increase in the solvating ability of the solvent. The solvation numbers in the primary solvation shell can be estimated by NMR, IR and Raman spectroscopy or by isotope dilution method. For example, in the NMR peak area method, the solvent molecules in the primary solvation shell of a metal ion ($1 M) give an 1 H-NMR peak separated from that for the bulk solvent if they have lifetimes longer than $10À4 s.
