A survey of evidence for the 'memory' of liquid water casts little light on its putative role in homeopathy, says Philip Ball. 

Physical chemistry: Water's wafer-thin surface

TLDR
A combination of vibrational spectroscopy and molecular calculations reveals that only the surface layer of water at the interface with air has a distinctly different structure from the bulk liquid, suggesting a remarkably rapid onset of bulk-phase behaviour, and an extremely short 'healing length' for the interface on crossing from the air into the water phase.

The peculiar properties of water are recalled, among them the “memory of water”, underlining the behavior of cell water, whose “ordered” structure is probably due to the endogenous electromagnetic

Human basophil degranulation triggered by very dilute antiserum against IgE

TLDR
When human polymorphonuclear basophils are exposed to anti-IgE antibodies, they release histamine from their intracellular granules and change their staining properties, and transmission of the biological information could be related to the molecular organization of water.
