EXAFS spectra have been measured in order to elucidate the local structure around Rb+ in aqueous solution. It has been found that the Rb+ is surrounded by ca. six O atoms of H20 molecules. The Rb-O distance was determined to be 2.90 (3) Å. The coordination number and Rb-O distance compare well with those of the other alkaline metal ions estimated by X-ray diffraction.
