Water's Mystery Unveiled
Water, water, everywhere, but why is it acidly neutral?
The question of why water has the pH level that it does has long puzzled scientists.
Using supercomputers and advanced algorithms, Rochester scientists led by Christoph
Dellago, assistant professor of chemistry, and researchers at the University
of California at Berkeley, have modeled the complex molecular reaction at the
heart of water's formation.
The discovery may help researchers better understand and control other such
reactions, opening doors to new medicines and materials.
