The discrepancy between the values of the characteristic size of the tetramethylurea molecule determined by various methods (elastic neutron scattering, physicochemical methods, neutron spin echo) predicts a peculiar arrangement of water molecules around dissolved TMU molecules. A cage-model commonly accepted for clathrates is proposed to explain the observed data.
