Water icosahedron showing some of the possible bicyclo-octamer water structures. The left-hand animation includes all 280 water oxygen atoms whereas the right-hand animation contains 216 water oxygen atoms. All the water hydrogen atoms and some of the hydrogen bonds have been removed to simplify the animations.

 

 

These animations use Jmol: an open-source Java viewer for chemical structures in 3D. Use the mouse for control.
