Water is water?

Post by Dreamweaver »

For most of us, water is water.
But to chemists, water is just plain weird,
and learning more about its reactivity could make a significant difference to how we study its properties.

It might just be two hydrogens and an oxygen,
but under various conditions it behaves in a multitude of unusual ways,
forming strange states of matter that we're only just beginning to understand.
