New light on permanganate: Electronic spectra of MnO4− and its complex with a single water molecule are measured in vacuo by photodissociation action spectroscopy of the mass-selected parent ions. The spectra are red-shifted by 0.15 eV compared to the spectrum obtained for the ions in aqueous solution. The data provide the best experimental benchmarks for electronic structure calculations on these prototypical metal tetroxo ions.
