Characteristic features of the physical properties of metal-ammonia(amine) solutions are reviewed. The concentration fluctuations and the pairing of the excess electrons are considerable in the intermediate region of Li- and Na-ammonia solutions, where metal-nonmetal transition takes place. On the other hand, Li-methylamine solutions seem more homogeneous in the intermediate region, exhibiting similar electric properties to those of molten semiconductors.
