X-ray diffraction ionization curves of water show (1) the presence of two definite peaks corresponding to the separation of diffraction planes of 3.27 A.u. and 2.11 A.u.; (2) the practically constant diffraction intensity of one peak over the temperature range, 2o to 98° C as compared with the gradual disappearance of the second peak with increasing temperature; (3) correspondence in angle of diffraction between these peaks and the chief diffraction intensities with ice crystals; and (4) the increase of peak width increasing temperature with a movement to indicating less distance of planes.
