This paper provides an interdisciplinary base of information on the structure of liquid water. It begins with a synthesis built on the information base on the structure 5 of noncrystalline, inorganic, covalently-bonded condensed liquid phases, such as SiO2, S, Se, P, and H2O, which exists in the materials science literature. The data for water are analyzed through the prism of well-established algorithms in materials research: the connection of properties to structure; the pressure-temperature… Expand
The defining role of structure (including epitaxy) in the plausibility of homeopathy.
TLDR
Preliminary data obtained using Raman and Ultra-Violet-Visible (UV-VIS) spectroscopy illustrate the ability to distinguish two different homeopathic medicines from one another and to differentiate, within a given medicine, the 6c, 12c, and 30c potencies. Expand
Characterization of the structure of ultra dilute sols with remarkable biological properties.
TLDR
The results show that the structures of many waters with easily demonstrated or long-claimed biological effects can be easily distinguished from the pure solvent, and from each other, by the use of UV-VIS and Raman spectroscopy, while FTIR is insensitive to these differences. Expand
Homeopathic potentization based on nanoscale domains.
TLDR
A simple description is provided of the process of potentization in homeopathic dilutions, and with the exception of minor details, this simple model replicates the results previously obtained from a more complex model. Expand
High-dilution effects revisited. 1. Physicochemical aspects.
TLDR
Current evidence strongly supports the notion that the structuring of water and its solutes at the nanoscale can play a key role, and the physicochemical nature of HDs is still far from to be clarified. Expand
Dielectric Dispersion Studies Indicate Change in Structure of Water by Potentised Homeopathic Medicines
Response of living bodies to different vastly ‘diluted’ homeopathic medicines are different (rejecting the sceptic’s view of ‘placebo’ effect), though they are chemically same. Till now there is noExpand

TLDR
The range of resonance frequencies suggest that the phenomenon might originate from oscillation of dipoles caused by electric field in variously structured and polarised water. Expand

Micro-nano particulate compositions of Hypericum perforatum L in ultra high diluted succussed solution medicinal products
TLDR
The findings showed that the whole preparation process leads to the creation of micro nanoparticles something that for solid origin these products are created by trituration and for extract origin products these nanoparticles exist from the beginning. Expand

TLDR
The capacity for self-organization and self-similarity in complex systems is the key to future research on the nature of homeopathic medicines and systemic healing during individualized homeopathic treatment. Expand
