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.
The open access journals are peer reviewed scholarly journals. The open access journals are freely available on the public internet domain, allowing any end users to read, download, copy, distribute, prink, search or link to the full texts of the articles. These provide high quality, meticulously reviewed and rapid publication, to cater the insistent need of scientific community. These journals are indexed with all their citations noted. The top open access journals are indexed in MEDLINE, PUBMED, SCOPUS, COPERNICUS, CAS, EBSCO and ISI.
