Preparation, Properties and Origin of (Derjaguin's) Anomalous Water and Glass/Water Reactions.
MIAMI UNIV CORAL GABLES FLA LAB FOR WATER RESEARCH
Pagination or Media Count:
Preparation, methods of measurement, and some properties are reported on anomalous aqueous condensates formed in capillaries from the vapor phase. Some thermodynamic calculations are presented and some comments made on the possibility of water and salt solutions creeping over glass surfaces. It is concluded that anomalous water is not a novel form of water, but rather an experimental artifact, caused by contamination, most likely due to dissolution of the quartz or glass capillaries. The possible simultaneous effects of long-range ordering of interfacial water is also discussed. Author
