On a collision course: Threshold collision-induced dissociation and guided ion beam tandem mass spectrometry are used to determine the binding enthalpies for Mg2+(H2O)x complexes in which x=2–10 (see picture). The dominant process that takes place for all Mg2+(H2O)x complexes is the loss of a single water molecule. Moreover, the first experimental hydration energies for Mg2+(H2O)2 to Mg2+(H2O)4 are determined.
