Water and water-like liquids: relationships between structure, entropy and mobility

Author affiliations

Abstract

Liquids with very diverse underlying interactions share the thermodynamic and transport anomalies of water, including metalloids, ionic melts and mesoscopic fluids. The generic feature that characterises such water-like liquids is a density-driven shift in the nature of local order in the condensed phases. The key semiquantitative relationships between structural order, thermodynamics and transport that are necessary in order to map out the consequences of this common qualitative feature for liquid-state properties and phase transformations of such systems are reviewed here. The application of these ideas to understand and model tetrahedral liquids, especially water, is discussed and possible extensions to other complex fluids are considered.
