First steps towards dissolution of NaSO4 by water

Author affiliations


NaSO4(H2O)n (n = 0–4) clusters have been generated in the gas phase as model systems to simulate the first dissolution steps of sulfate salts in water; photoelectron spectroscopy and theoretical calculations indicate that the first three water molecules strongly interact with both Na+ and SO42−, forming a three-water solvation ring to start to pry apart the Na+SO42− contact ion pair.
