Hydrogen Bond Energy of MeOH...H2O



 Hi Netters,
     I am looking for a reference to the experimental dimer
 geometry and energy for the methanol (acceptor) ... water (donor)
 hydrogen bond dimer.  At the HF/6-31G** level (without BSSE correction)
 I calculate an energy of 5 kcal/mol at an O...H separation of about
 2 Angstroms.  This seems reasonable, considering the values for
 water dimer.  However, I chose a non-experimental geometry.
 Any assistance will be appreciated.
