Mitotic Inhibition by Varying the Frequency of Water Clusters

Keywords:
mytotic inhibition, anharmonic vibrational modes

Abstract:
Computer simulations were developed at MIT in the 1970s to relate molecular structures to chemical & physical properties. These simulations were applied to the development of revolutionary catalysts for the petroleum industry, ferromagnets for the recording industry and new superconducting materials. Subsequently, the same approach was applied to liquid water in 1998 in an effort to understand the role of water in combustion of liquid fuels. These simulations indicated that water is not simply a random assembly of molecules, but has well-defined structural units. These structures are dynamical in that they form and break apart at a high rate, but once formed, they exhibit unusual vibrational modes referred to as anharmonic modes. The basic structural unit is a one nanometer diameter icosahedron containing one water molecule at each of its twenty vertices. These findings were supported by x-ray and Raman spectroscopy and published in the Journal, Science in 1998.
 
The successful simulation of water structures suggested several means for changing the frequency of the anharmonic modes and thereby impacting the catalytic nature of water. This ability to alter the vibrational properties of water has had a measurable impact on pathogens in biological systems.
