A water metal adduct was initially formed with the metals (Mg, Mn, Fe, Co); the metal preferentially bonding through the oxygen of water. This was evidenced by a decrease in the water bending mode at $1590 cm^{-1}$ to a lower frequency. Calculated interaction energies have suggested that the shift in the water bending frequency is related to the degree of bonding between the metal atom and water molecule. A shift in the water bending frequency was not observed for Ni and Cu, and only a comparatively small shift in the case of Zn, suggesting there is little or no interaction between these metals and water.Photolysis of the matrix, with a medium pressure mercury lamp, produced in all cases, a metal insertion reaction into the hydrogen-oxygen bond of water forming primarily the molecular species HMOMH AND HMOH. en_US dc.format.extent 86296 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title INFRARED SPECTRA OF THE REACTION BETWEEN METAL ATOMS AND WATER MOLECULES IN AN ARGON MATRIX en_US dc.type article en_US
