SOLVENT STRUCTURE AND PERTURBATIONS IN SOLUTIONS OF CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL IMPORTANCE.
CHEM SOC REV
1 - 10.
Much of chemistry and biology happens in an aqueous environment. Although the water is thought to play a significant role in the various processes, our understanding of these solvent effects at the molecular level is limited. Recent developments In neutron scattering are changing this: we can now begin to see directly how different solutes are hydrated, and how the solute perturbs its nearby solvent. This article discusses recent results on the hydration of both polar and non-polar groups, and tentatively concludes that the classical
