The transport coefficients of electrons in mixtures of gaseous water and tetrahydrofuran (THF) are calculated using a multi-term solution of the Boltzmann equation. Electron transport coefficients at room temperature are presented over a range of reduced electric fields from 0.1–1000 Td, with significant differences between the behaviour in pure water and pure THF being found. The influence of the water to THF mixture ratio on the calculated transport coefficients is also presented.
