cyclic pentamer, linked by hydrogen bonds

 

Here is an external 'Frequently asked questions" page that leads into a substantial and sensible website about water and water treatment.

 

'Water - The Marvellous Molecule' is a BBC radio program series Here is an external 'Frequently asked questions" site. 'Water - The Marvellous Molecule' is a BBC radio program series available on the Web. There is a BBC Radio 4 program on water with Melvyn Bragg that covers the basics. Interesting and useful molecular models of water may be bought from 3D Molecular Designs.

 

An interesting and useful Water in Biology blog has been started by Philip Ball.

 

Here are 3-D phase diagrams for water [1560] (another, 200-400 K), a "live" water phase diagram, a solid site concerned with 'unfreezable' water and one concerned with superheated water.

 

Do you want to see individual water molecules as they move using a scanning tunneling microscope?

 

Here are sites concerned with hydrogen, oxygen and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) plus interesting papers on H2O3 [2498] , H2O4 [2500] and HO3 [2499].

 

If you are interested in snow crystals then this site gives a lot of detail.

 

However if bubbles or fountains (a fascinating sales site) interest you then there is plenty at these sites.

 

Here are three (water cluster 1, water cluster 2) databases (using different methodologies) and a protonated water cluster database.

 

Sweet Briar College provides class notes on water (H2O - The Mystery, Art & Science of Water) concerning the nature, properties, place, significance, importance, and role of water in Earth's  life and culture.

 

Related to the structuring in water, there is an interesting site concerned with giant metal-oxide keplerates.

 

For information concerning bottled water, visit the International Bottled Water Association and for drinking water, contaminants and treatment methods visit Randy Johnson's Drinking Water Resources site.

 

The Water Security Knowledge Exchange Portal is designed to help businesses, policymakers, regulators and others see how the water-related challenges that they face have been addressed, and to assist them in finding the data and researchers that can help them address the water-related challenges of the future. For water resource information visit the Natural Resources Defense Council, Environment Canada or the Best of the Web site. Nature, has information on the global water crisis. For information about the UK water industry and the companies operating within it, visit this site. For data on the many issues related to freshwater. A useful water conservation site is found here.

 

Many properties of water and steam can be calculated on Valery Ochkov's page; also those of seawater, including its density. The International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam has reports concerning the properties of water. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Web book has an entry for water.

 

The excellent and comprehensive solid geometry of icosahedra site has been re-opened and is well worth a visit.

Magnetic and catalytic water treatments and sales of clustered/declustered water are debunked at Water Cluster Quackery. Papers on ionized water are presented here.

 

Visit here if you need to measure water vapor flux density with great sensitivity and accuracy.

 

Here is the extensive Sheffield Chemdex links site for chemists, Liverpool's Links for Chemists and a patents searching site that allows a chemical search, via SMILES strings or by drawing structures, of most of the world's patents.

 

This site gives the fundamental physical constants, useful conversion between energy units and atomic units (a.u). Here is Rowlett's Dictionary of Units. eMolecules is a free chemical search engine.

 

The IUPAC compendium of chemical terminology (The Gold book) is a (free) highly recommended interactive nomenclature reference for the chemical sciences. Here is a glossary of molecular modeling.

 

Here are some generally useful sites: Protein Data Bank; Molecular nomenclature; Molecular indexing guide; Center for Biological Sequence Analysis data sets; (WebElements) Periodic Table, Visual Elements (a visually stunning periodic table); Journal of Chemical Education's periodic table; and A Guide to Metals and the Periodic Table.

 

A festival of art, science, and music inspired by water "Colours of Water" was held at the Menier Gallery, London, UK from 12-28 March 2013, that included exhibitions, lectures and performances by an international cast of artists, scientists and musicians. This conference is further described in 'Science to Sage'. A relevant Gordon Research Conference was Water & Aqueous Solutions (July 27- Aug 1, 2014).

 

The 4th Conference and School on Frontiers in Water Biophysics will be held in Erice (Italy), May 23 – 28,  2017 for presentation and discussion of the most up-to-date experimental and simulation research in the field of water structure and dynamics at the nanoscale and mesoscale, properties. The Eleventh Annual Conference on the Physics, Chemistry and Biology of Water was held in Bulgaria, October 6-9, 2016 (a curate's egg of a conference).  There will be a workshop, Water at interfaces: from proteins to devices from November 29 to December 2, 2016 at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute for Mathematics and Physics, Vienna.

 

A water journal has been launched on-line 'WATER: A Multidisciplinary Research Journal'.

 

This site has further information on health aspects of electromagnetic fields

 

SklogWiki is an open-edit encyclopedia dedicated to thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, oriented towards computer
simulations and theoretical studies, with several entries for water. It is still in its early days of development.

 

For much information concerning Cold Fusion go to the Low Energy Nuclear Reactions site featuring more than 500 original papers.

 

If you have a more general interest in water, visit the Water Science for Schools web site at the U.S. Geological Survey.

 

If you are curious as to what happens to your sins when they are washed away with holy water see [1730].
