Microhydration of nitromethane anions from both a solute and solvent perspective.


We present experimental infrared spectroscopic data on mass-selected, hydrated nitromethane anion clusters with up to four water ligands. The vibrational bands in the OH stretching region encode the solvent structure, while the CH stretching bands contain information on the influence of the hydration shell on the solute ion. We interpret our findings using… (More)
