One view is that the variation in the partial molal volume of water is produced by a change in its structure from a four-coordinated to a higher one. This view receives corroboration from experiments with the x-ray diffraction pattern of aqueous ionic solutions of thirty-one strong electrolytes. The results show a correspondence between the rate of variation of (1) the partial molal volume with concentration of the electrolyte; and (2) the liquid structure of the water also with concentration.
