The reactivity of presolvated electrons with CO2 and N2O was studied in the gas pressure range from 1 to 52 bar. To measure this reactivity, the home-made spectroscopic cell with liquid circulation was developed working up to 70bar of gas pressure. The efficiency of presolvated electron scavenging was determined from the decrease of solvated electrons yield after the 5ps electron pulse. In addition, the reaction rate between these molecules and solvated electrons was directly determined at gas pressures below the critical point, which is in agreement with those presented in the literature measured at gas pressures below <1atm.
