Scientists Transformed Pure Water Into a Metal, And There’s Footage

Posted by in category: futurism

Pure water is an almost perfect insulator.

Yes, water found in nature conducts electricity – but that’s because of the impurities therein, which dissolve into free ions that allow an electric current to flow. Pure water only becomes “metallic” – electronically conductive – at extremely high pressures, beyond our current abilities to produce in a lab.

But, as researchers demonstrated for the first time back in 2021, it’s not only high pressures that can induce this metallicity in pure water.
