The spectroscopic properties of mercury and mercury dimer clustered with water, ammonia and 1–1 dimethylether have been studied through mass selected resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization spectroscopy. The ground state structure of these clusters have been calculated. Comparison between calculations and experimental results show that the spectrum is not governed by the structural properties of the clusters.
