Abstract : Research continues in the direction of understanding the physical state of water and ions in living cells as these are the essential foundation knowledge for all future biomedical research and in applying this knowledge to solving other practical problems of interest to the Navy. Subjects discussed are: (a) the rotational correlation time of non-solvent water; (b) the establishment of the adsorbed state of counterions (Na+) in ion exchange resins, and (c) the dependence on Ca(++) concentration in cell swelling induced by isotonic KC1 in muscle cells without an intact cell membrane.
