New Properties of Supercooled Water Discovered Water that stays liquid far below its normal freezing point

Water is an unusual liquid with many odd properties. On the Celsius scale, pure water typically freezes at 0 degrees (32 degrees Fahrenheit) and boils at 100 degrees (212 degrees Fahrenheit). However, liquid water can still remain liquid far below its normal freezing point, a new study shows. A team of researchers, led by Prof. Chae Un Kim (School
