By using a Quantum Molecular Dynamics Method, we provide evidence that excess electrons in diluted NaNaBr solutions localize to form dipolar Na atomic-like states. This is at variance with the solutions involving heavier alkali metals, where F-center-like states are formed. At higher concentrations, we observe formation of various spin-paired species. In agreement with earlier speculations, the most probable are found to be Na- and Na2.
