Abstract

Predissociation spectra of the H5 O2+ ·R Gn (RG=Ar,Ne) cluster ions are reported in energy regions corresponding to both the OH stretching (3350-3850 cm-1) and shared proton (850-1950 cm-1) vibrations. The two free OH stretching bands displayed by the Ne complex are quite close to the band origins identified earlier in bare H5 O2+ [L. I. Yeh, M. Okumura, J. D. Myers, J. M. Price, and Y. T. Lee, J. Chem. Phys. 91, 7319 (1989)], indicating that the symmetrical H5 O2+ "Zundel" ion remains largely intact in H5 O2+ ·Ne. The low-energy spectrum of the Ne complex is simpler than that observed previously for H5 O2+ ·Ar, and is dominated by two sharp transitions at 928 and 1047 cm-1, with a weaker feature at 1763 cm-1. The H5 O2+ · Arn, n=1-5 spectra generally exhibit complex band structures reflecting solvent-induced symmetry breaking of the Zundel core ion. The extent of solvent perturbation is evaluated with electronic structure calculations, which predict that the rare gas atoms should attach to the spectator OH groups of H5 O2+ rather than to the shared proton. In the asymmetric complexes, the shared proton resides closer to the more heavily solvated water molecule, leading to redshifts in the rare gas atom-solvated OH stretches and to blueshifts in the shared proton vibrations. The experimental spectra are compared with recent full-dimensional vibrational calculations (diffusion Monte Carlo and multimode/vibrational configuration interaction) on H5 O2+. These results are consistent with assignment of the strong low-energy bands in the H5 O2+ ·Ne spectrum to the vibration of the shared proton mostly along the O-O axis, with the 1763 cm-1 band traced primarily to the out-of-phase, intramolecular bending vibrations of the two water molecules. © 2005 American Institute of Physics.
