A Journey Through Water: A Scientific Exploration of The Most Anomalous Liquid on Earth
, is a monograph about water at molecular level. The monograph explores how its peculiar properties are related to its molecular structure. Readers are introduced to water through information about water in a wider perspective, properties of its liquid state, experimental techniques for molecular level investigations of liquid water, and computer simulation techniques. This is followed by chapters explaining the structural properties and principal applications of various phases of water (water as a normal liquid, supercooled water, ice and supercritical water). Key features of this reference include:
- easy to understand, sequential and structured text making this reference ideal for readers with limited scientific knowledge of water physics
- a list of institutions where water research is promoted in larger scales
- 130 figures which supplement the text
- an explanation of ten principal anomalies of water and associated theories
The book is an excellent resource for novice researchers (physicists, chemists and chemical engineers) working on water and laymen who are interested in furthering their understanding of this precious liquid.
