Understanding of the structure and dynamics of dipolar liquids has undergone a renaissance in the past decade. This rapid progress has been rendered possible by extensive experimental, theoretical and computer simulation studies on the solvation of polar probe molecules in dipolar solvents. Several remarkable discoveries have been made. For example, the large amplitude of the ultra-fast component of solvation in water and acetonitrile with a sub-hundred femtosecond time constant was certainly not anticipated even in the late eighties. Needless to say, the new results have created great enthusiasm and are helping to understand better the solvent effects on electron transfer reactions, vibrational relaxation and in many other dynamic processes in dipolar solvents.
