Effect of Coordination of Molecules on the Properties of Water as Solvent
IR spectra of mixtures of light and heavy water seem to provide a clear evidence for the existence of substructures, each of which may be assigned to a particular kind of water molecule on the basis of their correlation with the local environment. These substructures have been related to three different populations named correlated, non correlated and intermediate according to their degree of correlation. Experimental data analysis show that, in a mixture of H2O-D2O, each population participates differently to the solution process.
