Photoelectron spectra of two species, Al3O3(H2O)2 and Al3O3(CH3OH)2, that are produced by the addition of two water or methanol molecules to Al3O3 are interpreted with density-functional geometry optimizations and electron propagator calculations of vertical electron detachment energies. In both cases, there is only one isomer that is responsible for the observed spectral features. A high barrier to the addition of a second molecule may impede the formation of Al3O3N2H6 clusters in an analogous experiment with NH3.
