The water dimer I: Experimental characterization
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.1016/j.cplett.2015.04.016
As the archetype of water hydrogen bonding, the water dimer has been studied extensively by both theory and experiment for nearly seven decades. In this article, we present a detailed chronological review of the experimental dimer studies and the insights into the complex nature of water and hydrogen bonding gained from them. A subsequent letter will review the corresponding theoretical advances.
