The anomalous properties of ambient water at normal pressure and temperatures from 0 C to 100 C are mainly due to the physics of hydrogen bonds in supramolecular structures (SMS). Lifetime, composition, and degree of ordering of SMS are temperature dependent and this affects temperature dependences (TDs) of all water characteristics. To clarify the nature of movements responsible for SMS restructuring, we used activation energies (EA) of known TDs 13 characteristics of water and 10 parameters… 

Activation energies of water molecular dynamics and Stokes-Einstein equation

An analysis of the values and signs of the activation energies of temperature dependences (TDs) of the self-diffusion coefficient (D) and dynamic viscosity ({\eta}) in the range from 0 °C to 100 °C

Activation energy of water structural transitions

Physically adequate approximations for abnormal temperature dependences of water characteristics

Evidence of two distinct local structures of water from ambient to supercooled conditions.

A time-resolved optical Kerr effect investigation of the vibrational dynamics and relaxation processes in supercooled bulk water brings evidence of the coexistence of two local configurations, which are interpreted as high-density and low-density water forms, with an increasing weight of the latter at low temperatures.

Chirality anomalies of water solutions of saccharides

Collective hydrogen bond reorganization in water studied with temperature-dependent ultrafast infrared spectroscopy.

This work uses temperature-dependent ultrafast infrared spectroscopy of dilute HOD in H(2)O to study the picosecond reorganization of the hydrogen bond network of liquid water and finds similar effective activation barrier heights and slightly non-Arrhenius behavior, which suggests that the reaction coordinate for the hydrogen Bond rearrangement in water is collective.

Unified description of temperature-dependent hydrogen-bond rearrangements in liquid water.

It is shown here that many of the features of the Raman spectrum that are considered to be hallmarks of a multistate system, including the asymmetric band profile, the isosbestic (temperature invariant) point, and van't Hoff behavior, actually result from a continuous distribution.

Effect of high salt concentrations on water structure

THE characteristic tetrahedral structure of water is known to be disrupted by changes in pressure and temperature1–3. It has been suggested that ions in solution may have a similar perturbing

The PACHA (Partial Atomic Charges and Hardnesses Analysis) formalism is applied to various supramolecular assemblies of water molecules and it is shown that the hydrogen bond strength is roughly constant below 1 GPa and considerably weakened above that value.

On the existence of two states in liquid water: impact on biological and nanoscopic systems

This work reviews several properties of liquid water, including the dielectric constant and the proton-spin lattice relaxation, and draws attention to a bilinear behaviour defining a crossover in the

Ultrafast X-ray probing of water structure below the homogeneous ice nucleation temperature

It is demonstrated that femtosecond X-ray laser pulses can be used to probe the structure of liquid water in micrometre-sized droplets that have been evaporatively cooled below TH, and experimental evidence is found for the existence of metastable bulk liquid water down to temperatures of  kelvin in the previously largely unexplored no man’s land.
