1 Hydrogen Bonding in Methanated Li + (H 2 O) 2-4 Clusters Oscar Rodriguez Jr. and James M. Lisy University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

2 Why Study Methane-Water Clusters? Hydrophilic-Hydrophobic interactions Gas hydrates (Clathrates): Gases trapped in water clusters, or cages. This occurs in oceans or permafrost M + ···(H 2 O) 2-5 completed Miller, D.J. et al. JACS (2008) Miller, D.J. et al. JACS (2008) … now add CH 4 United States Geological Survey
