Some Physicochemical Properties of Water and Aqueous Solutions under High Pressure — Hydrophobic Hydration

It is well recognized from the analysis of x-ray diffraction that liquid water at atmospheric pressure retains the four-coordinated open structure of ice-I. On the other hand, the critical pressure for the presence of ice-I is well known to be about 2 kbars in the phase diagram of water. These two facts suggest the possibility that compressed liquid water might retain the structure of dense ice of the corresponding high-pressure phase, and that the physicochemical properties of liquid water are changed dramatically above about 2 kbars.
