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.

Until now.

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.
