Water Molecules in Solid Hydrates — Correlation of Spectroscopic and Crystallographic Data

  • H. D. Lutz
  • J. Henning


Combined studies of neutron diffraction and both infrared and Raman spectroscopy exhibit detailed insights into intermolecular bonding and structure of water molecules in solid hydrates. Some novel results on hydrogen bonding, metal water interaction, OH frequency vs H-bond length correlation diagrams, and orientational disorder of water molecules are presented in this paper.
