  • Scientists identified three different types of water molecules surrounding a heavy, anionic metal-chloride complex (bottom) using spectroscopy (top) at an air/water interface. Each type of water is defined by a different orientation and hydrogen-bonding strength. This complex water structure is markedly different from those formed around smaller and lighter ions.
