    The electrostatic forces of attraction are very less in Na as it's an alkali metal n radius is large so the last electron is not in the hold of nucleus means it can loose the electron easily, which makes it highly reactive.;

    Vincent is correct. The case of solvated electrons in ammonia is a famous study subject in physical chemistry.
