Hydration structures of "nanosolutions" around both cation and anion for rubidium bromide confined in nanospaces (pore width = 1.1 nm) of activated carbon fiber were determined with EXAFS measurements and related analysis. The analytical results indicate that the ionic solutions confined in hydrophobic nanospaces tend to form an incomplete dehydration structure, because of the spatial restriction by the nanospace and capturing water molecules in the ordered structure.
