Abstract The separation at low temperatures of alkali metalammonia solutions of about 4% metal into two liquid phases has seemed surprising. However, if one regards the ammonia as a dielectric medium within which the alkali metal ions and vaience electrons move, then the phase separation may be understood as a vaporliquid condensation. This model is developed semiquantitatively and is found to be consistent with the experimental properties of the solutions.
