Pressure increases the ice-like order of water at hydrophobic interfaces

Hölzl, Christoph ; Horinek, Dominik


A common feature of water close to nonpolar particles, at hydrophobic interfaces, and at the surface to its vapor is the signature of ice-like orientated water molecules. By forming ice-like orientations, the number of unsatisfied hydrogen bonds is minimized and thus the energetic penalty is reduced. To what extent these structural motifs correspond to the existence of a real ice layer has been a ...
