Positron annihilation in nitrobenzene and manganese oleate solutions in benzene was studied in the liquid and solid states using both lifetime and angular correlation methods. It was found that a long lifetime component (τ2~1.3 ns) appeared in the lifetime spectrum for the solid state of a nitrobenzene solution in benzene but not in the liquid state. The results are briefly discussed.
