  • Three long-standing problems related to the physics of water, viz., the possibility of vitrifying bulk water by rapid quenching, its glass transition, and the supposed impossibility of obtaining supercooled water between 150 and 233 K, the so-called "no man's land" of its phase diagram, are studied using the highly sensitive technique of spin probe ESR. Our results suggest that water can indeed be vitrified by rapid quenching; it undergoes a glass transition at approximately 135 K, and the… CONTINUE READING
