Title: Structure of Dense Liquid Water by Neutron Scattering to 6.5 GPa and 670 K

Abstract

We present a neutron diffraction study of liquid water to 6.5 GPa and 670 K. From the measured structure factors we determine radial and angular distributions. It is shown that with increasing density water approaches a local structure common to a simple liquid while distorting only a little the tetrahedral first-neighbor coordination imposed by hydrogen bonds that remain intact.
