Protons, as positively charged hydrogen ions, move very rapidly in water from one water molecule to the next, which is why the conductivity of water is relatively high.
Researchers reported today in the journal Science Express that the ratio of the proton's mass to that of the electron has hardly changed over the past seven billion years.
A Los Alamos National Laboratory research team has harnessed neutrons to view for the first time the critical role that an elusive molecule plays in certain biological reactions.
Water molecules are continuously forming short-lived networks called clusters.
Free protons from acids associate with 1, 2 or 3 molecules of water and the structures can be identified by unique infrared laser spectrum signatures, according to a report in Science by Yale professor of chemistry Mark A.
