This publication treats different present in addition to strange and hitherto usually unstudied physico-chemical and surface-thermodynamic homes of water that govern all polar interactions taking place in it. those houses comprise the hyper-hydrophobicity of the water-air interface, the cluster formation of water molecules within the liquid nation and the concomitant variability of the ratio of the electron-accepticity to electron-donicity of liquid water as a functionality of temperature, T. the rise of that ratio with T is the reason for the rise in hydration repulsion ("hydration pressure") among polar surfaces upon heating, after they are immersed in water.The e-book additionally treats the outside homes of apolar and polar molecules, polymers, debris and cells, in addition to their mutual interplay energies, whilst immersed in water, below the effect of the 3 triumphing non-covalent forces, i.e., Lewis acid-base (AB), Lifshitz-van der Waals (LW) and electric double layer (EL) interactions. The polar AB interactions, be they beautiful or repulsive, as a rule signify as much as ninety% of the full interplay energies taking place in water. hence the addition of AB energies to the LW + EL energies of the classical DLVO thought of power vs. distance research makes this robust instrument (the prolonged DLVO concept) acceptable to the quantitative research of the steadiness of particle suspensions in water. The impression of AB forces at the interfacial stress among water and different condensed-phase fabrics is under pressure and serves, inter alia, to provide an explanation for, degree and calculate the driver of the hydrophobic allure among such fabrics (the "hydrophobic effect"), while immersed in water. those phenomena, that are standard for liquid water, impact all polar interactions that occur in it. All of those are handled from the point of view of the houses of liquid water itself, together with the houses of advancing freezing fronts and the skin homes of ice at 0o C. - Explains and permits the quantitative size of hydrophobic allure and hydrophilic repulsion in water- Measures the measure of cluster formation of water molecules- Discusses the effect of temperature at the cluster measurement of water molecules- Treats the multitudinous results of the hyper-hydrophobicity of the water-air interface
