An exact, analytical solution for the linear solvation free energy of a dipolar solute in an arbitrary dielectric material characterized by the microscopic spectrum of fluctuations of its dipolar polarization is formulated. A general formulation of the problem in terms of a solute of an arbitrary shape with an arbitrary charge distribution. Thus, this formulation may provide a basis for numerical calculations of the solvation thermodynamics.
