About the cover: The structure and thermodynamics of water and aqueous solutions is of great importance for all sciences, especially chemistry and biology, and industry. Water exhibits many anomalous properties that affect life at a larger scale. The reason for water’s complexity is due to its strong orientation-dependent hydrogen bonding and strong intermolecular associations. Page 505–520.
