Part of the Water book series (WCT, volume 2)


This chapter is concerned with information obtainable from crystallographic and spectroscopic studies of the water molecule in stoichiometric hydrates. Water molecules in a hydrate crystal interact with their surroundings through hydrogen bonding and cation-water coordination. We shall deal with these interactions and their consequences.
