Water chemistry is the science that deals with impact of water on other elements in the environment and how other elements in this environment affect the quality of water. Water chemistry plays an important role in the health, abundance and diversity of life that lives on earth. Excessive amounts of some constituents, such as nutrients, or the lack of others, such as dissolved oxygen, can result in degraded conditions and harms life. Water is called the "universal solvent" because it dissolves more substances than any other liquid. This means that wherever water goes, either through the ground or through our bodies, it takes along valuable chemicals, minerals, and nutrients. Water chemistry mainly deals with analysing composition of water, structure and bonding of water, molecular vibration of water, symmetry of water molecules, formation of hydrogen bonding in water, structure of ice, autoionization, leveling effect of water and acid-base characters, amphiprotic nature, reactivity of water towards alkali metals; alkaline earth metals; halogens; hydrides; methane; oxides; and oxygen ions and electrolysis of water.
Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature. Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method. Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
