Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Liquid water at 170 degrees Celsius

(Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY) Using the X-ray laser European XFEL, a research team has investigated how water heats up under extreme conditions. In the process, the scientists were able to observe water that remained liquid even at temperatures of more than 170 degrees Celsius. The investigation revealed an anomalous dynamic behaviour of water, which is of fundamental importance for investigations of sensitive samples using X-ray lasers, as the scientists report in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
