Abstract Singly hydrated clusters of deprotonated amino acids were studied using an electrospray high-pressure mass spectrometer equipped with a pulsed ion-beam reaction chamber. Thermochemical data, ΔH $^{ o }$, ΔS $^{ o }$, and ΔG $^{ o }$, for the hydration reaction [AA − H]$^{−}$ + H$_{2}$O = [AA − H]$^{−}$·(H$_{2}$O) were obtained from gas-phase equilibria determinations for AA = Gly, Ala, Val, Pro, Phe, Lys, Met, Trp, Gln, Arg, and Asp. The hydration free-energy changes are found to depend significantly on the side-chain substituents. The water binding energy in [AA − H]$^{−}$·(H$_{2}$O) increases with the gas-phase acidity of AA. The anionic hydrogen bond strengths in [AA − H]$^{−}$·(H$_{2}$O) are compared with those of the cationic bonds in the corresponding AAH$^{+}$·(H$_{2}$O) systems.
