Metal ions in unusual oxidation states can be introduced into water clusters using a standard laser vaporization source. Such nanosolutions of a single ion in typically 50 water molecules are comparable to a 1 M bulk solution, and their chemistry can be studied in the ion trap of a Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer. We find that a strong acid like hydrogen chloride oxidizes the early transition metal vanadium to the more common +III state, while later first row transition metals retain their unusual +I oxidation state, and the binary metal chlorides M(I)Cl precipitate.
