Abstract : Preparation, methods of measurement, and some properties are reported on anomalous aqueous condensates formed in capillaries from the vapor phase. Some thermodynamic calculations are presented and some comments made on the possibility of water and salt solutions 'creeping' over glass surfaces. It is concluded that anomalous water is not a novel form of water, but rather an experimental artifact, caused by contamination, most likely due to dissolution of the quartz (or glass) capillaries. The possible simultaneous effects of long-range ordering of interfacial water is also discussed. (Author)
