Potential energy surfaces of water mapped for the first time
A better understanding of the chemistry of water
12-Jul-2022 - Liquids are more difficult to describe than gases or crystalline solids. An HZB team has now mapped the potential energy surfaces of water molecules in liquid water under ambient conditions for the first time at the Swiss Light Source SLS of the Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland. This ...
A single molecule makes a big splash in the understanding of the two types of water
“Because water plays such an important role in chemistry and biology, and even in understanding our universe, we expect our findings to have a wide-ranging impact”
10-Jan-2022 - It plays a fundamental role in human existence and is a major component of our universe, yet there are still things we don’t understand about water. To address the knowledge gaps, a collaborative team of Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo, Kyoto University, and Tohoku ...
In a first, scientists capture a ‘quantum tug’ between neighboring water molecules
The work sheds light on the web of hydrogen bonds that gives water its strange properties, which play a vital role in many chemical and biological processes
27-Aug-2021 - Wateris the most abundant yet least understood liquid in nature. It exhibits many strange behaviors that scientists still struggle to explain. While most liquids get denser as they get colder, water is most dense at 39 degrees Fahrenheit, just above its freezing point. This is why ice floats to ...
The Missing Step in the Water Warmup: First Bend and then Turn
New insights into how and how quickly the energy stored in a bent water molecule is dissipated into heat
11-Dec-2020 - The water on Earth makes our planet inhabitable. It absorbs the Sun’s energy and releases it in the form of heat. An international research collaboration headed by the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) has now shown how and how fast the stored energy in the water molecules is ...
