The Structure and Properties of Water

D Eisenberg and W Kauzmann


This book has correlated many experimental observations and theoretical discussions from scientific literature on water. Topics covered include the water molecule and forces between water molecules; the thermodynamic properties of steam; the structures of the ices; the thermodynamic, electrical, spectroscopic, and transport properties of the ices and of liquid water; hydrogen bonding in ice and water; and models for liquid water. The main emphasis of the book is on relating the properties of ice and water to their structures. Some background material in physical chemistry has been included.

Keywords: water molecule, steam, ice, thermodynamic, electrical, spectroscopic, transport, hydrogen bonding, liquid water
