Abstract

original image

Collision-induced dissociation is used to quantitatively measure the energy for loss of water from magnesium dications solvated with two to ten water molecules. These experimental results agree well with theoretical calculations, as shown on p. 681 by D. R. Carl and P. B. Armentrout.
