Publisher:Ohio State University
We present a joint theoretical experimental study of the solvation and dissociation of nitric acid in water. First principles electronic structure calculations assist in identifying spectroscopic features of the solvated nitric acid -water clusters and their transition upon formation of Solvent Separated Ion Pairs (SSIPs). The theoretical results are used to interpret experimental FTIR spectra of matrix isolated nitric acid - water clusters formed by incrementally increasing the amount of water in the matrix.
