Water’s Ferroelectricity Demonstrated As Physicists ‘Dissolve’ Water in an Emerald

Scientists detect ferroelectric properties of water molecules by placing them into a network of nanocavities in a crystal

 

Ferroecelctricty is Water

Scientists from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and several research teams working in Russia and other European countries have been the first to reliably realize and document the phenomenon of ferroelectricity in water by confining water molecules within nano-cages in a beryl crystal. The results of their work are published in Nature Communications.
