The neutral and negatively charged (H O) Ar , n = 1-14, clusters are investigated theoretically by use of a polarizable model potential together, in the case of the anionic clusters, with a Drude-model approach to incorporate dispersion interactions between the excess electron and the argon atoms and water molecules. The (H O) Ar and (H O) Ar clusters are predicted to be "magic numbers", with their high stability being a result of their global minima adopting icosahedral-like structures. On the basis of these results, a mechanism for formation of the anions is proposed. In addition, the rapid falloff in intensity of the n ≥ 7 anionic clusters in the observed mass spectrum and the absence of observable signal for the n = 10 cluster are accounted for. 2 2 n 2 2 11 2 2 12 -
