In this work it a strong evidence of the hydrated electrons production was shown in a film of condensed water, by directing the injection of electrons in localized and/or delocalized water electronic states using a system of high voltage made in laboratory. The results show that the water layers on the silica particles are electrically charged by injection of electrons from a metal electrode when silica is placed in high electric field. This charging process also appears to depend on the
