Intermolecular hydrogen bond and its spectroscopic manifestations in formation of small water complexes

  • N. A. Zvereva
Optics and Spectroscopy


Ab initio calculations of small water(H 2 O) n , n=2–7, complexes and the experimental evidence available are compared. The results obtained are used as a basis for a theoretical investigation into the water molecule association through hydrogen bonding and its spectroscopic manifestations. Basic structural and spectroscopic trends are established as the complex increases in size.
