The conclusion by Turi et al. (Reports, 5 August 2005, p. 914) that all experimental spectral and energetic data on water-cluster anions point toward surface-bound electrons is overstated. Comparison of experimental vertical detachment energies with their calculated values for (H2O) n clusters with surface-bound and internalized electrons supports previous arguments that both types of clusters exist.
