Title: Spectroscopic characterization of the complex between water and the simplest Criegee intermediate CH{sub 2}OO

The hydrogen-bonded complex between water and the simplest Criegee intermediate CH{sub 2}OO was detected by Fourier-transform microwave spectroscopy under a jet-cooled condition. Both a-type and b-type rotational transitions were observed for H{sub 2}O–CH{sub 2}OO and D{sub 2}O–CH{sub 2}OO. The determined rotational constants enable us to conclude that the complex has an almost planar ring structure with the terminal oxygen atom of CH{sub 2}OO being a strong proton acceptor.
