Water gets in the way: Hydrated I(CH3I) complexes, I(CH3I)(H2O)1–3, are investigated by IR photodissociation spectroscopy to examine the stable structures of the intermediates of the I+CH3I[RIGHTWARDS ARROW]ICH3+I SN2 reaction under hydrated conditions. The structures and the energetics of the complexes suggest that just one or two H2O molecules will effectively inhibit this SN2 reaction.
