We present ab initio molecular orbital calculations on vertical ionization potentials of surface and interior anion structures of I-(H2O)n (n=7, 8) clusters. The 'magic number' in the differential ionization potential of I-(H2O)6 is accounted for by the dominance of surface structures for n=2-5, the 'transition' from a surface structure to an interior structure at n=6 and the prevalence of the solvation shell closure for n=7, 8.
