Abstract

Precisely size-selected protonated water clusters H+(H 2O)n (n=20-200) were studied by IR spectroscopy to provide insights into the structures of large-scale H-bonded water networks. The spectral features reveal that cluster structures gradually approach that of the bulk-water network and involve a greater number of four-coordinate water molecules with increasing cluster size (see picture).
