Physicists ‘dissolve’ water in an emerald | EurekAlert! Science News


Scientists have detected ferroelectric properties of water molecules by placing them into a network of nanoactivities in a crystal. No firm experimental evidence has been obtained so far for the dipole-dipole ordering of water molecules, although numerous attempts have been made by researches worldwide.The electric fields, which are generated by nanoconfined water, could play a vital role in various phenomena studied in biology, chemistry, geology, and meteorology, or even in the formation of the planets of our Solar System.
