On the Origin of the Hydrogen-Bond-Network Nature of Water: X-Ray Absorption and Emission Spectra of Water-Acetonitrile Mixtures
2011 (English)In: Angewandte Chemie International Edition, ISSN 1433-7851, E-ISSN 1521-3773, Vol. 50, no 45, 10621-10625 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A liquid microjet was used to obtain oxygen K-edge X-ray absorption and emission spectra of water–acetonitrile mixtures of various compositions. The observed spectral changes are unambiguously related to the increasing number of broken hydrogen bonds with decreasing water concentration, and the hydrogen-bond network of liquid water can thus be addressed on purely experimental grounds without the need for theoretical modeling.
