A sequential of concepts developed in last decade has enabled a resolution to multiple anomalies of water ice and its low-dimensionality, particularly. Developed concepts include the coupled hydrogen bond oscillator pair, segmental specific heat, three-body coupling potentials, quasisolidity, and supersolidity. Resolved anomalies include ice buoyancy, ice slipperiness, water skin toughness, supercooling and superheating at the nanoscale, etc. Evidence shows consistently that molecular… 
Water ice compression: Principles and applications
Review of: "Asymmetric response of interfacial water to applied electric fields"
VSFG investigation [1] revealed the asymmetrical response of the surface heavy water (D2O) dipoles to the charge polarity of the graphene electrode, evidencing the nonlinearity of the surface water


Hydrogen bond asymmetric local potentials in compressed ice.
A combination of the Lagrangian mechanics of oscillators vibration, molecular dynamics decomposition of volume evolution, and Raman spectroscopy of phonon relaxation has enabled us to resolve the
Ice Regelation: Hydrogen-bond extraordinary recoverability and water quasisolid-phase-boundary dispersivity
Oxygen atom always finds bonding partners to retain its sp3-orbital hybridization once the O:H breaks, which ensures O:O-O bond recoverability to its original state once the pressure is relieved.
From ice superlubricity to quantum friction: Electronic repulsivity and phononic elasticity
Superlubricity means non-sticky and frictionless when two bodies are set contacting motion. Although this occurrence has been extensively investigated since 1859 when Faraday firstly proposed a
Water nanodroplet thermodynamics: quasi-solid phase-boundary dispersivity.
It has long been puzzling that water nanodroplets undergo simultaneously "supercooling" at freezing and "superheating" at melting and understandings may open an effective way of dealing with the thermodynamic behavior of water droplets and bubbles from the perspective of O:H-O bond cooperativity.
Water dynamics--the effects of ions and nanoconfinement.
The water orientational relaxation in the 4 nm diameter nanopools of the two types of reverse micelles is almost identical, which indicates that confinement by an interface to form a nanoscopically confined water pool is a primary factor governing the dynamics of nanoscopic water rather than the presence of charged groups at the interface.
Ultrafast dynamics of hydrogen bond exchange in aqueous ionic solutions.
The 2DIR experiments and CPMD simulations demonstrate that orientational motions predominantly dictate the rate of H-bond exchange, while translational diffusion must occur to complete the molecular exchange between the two structurally distinct subshells around the perchlorate anions.
Atomistic origin, temperature dependence, and responsibilities of surface energetics: An extended broken-bond rule
There has long been confusion regarding the origin and temperature dependence of surface energetics and its responsibility for the processes and phenomena at a surface. From the perspective of bonds
