Water Flows Like Molasses on the Nanoscale

March 31, 2007 8:00 pm | News | Comments

A Georgia Tech research team has discovered that water exhibits very different properties when it is confined to channels less than two nanometers wide — behaving much like a viscous fluid with a viscosity approaching that of molasses. Determining the properties of water on the nanoscale may prove important for biological and pharmaceutical research…
