The hydration structure of RbBr electrolytic solution confined in carbon nanospaces was determined with EXAFS technique and related analyses. The analytical results indicate that the electrolytes confined in hydrophobic nanospaces have an incomplete dehydration structure, because of an intensive restriction and cluster formation of adsorbed water molecules in the nanospaces.
