"Considerable interest has developed recently in a material called "polywater" or "anomalous water". This material has properties quite different from those normally associated with liquid water. The purpose of this study is to give some mass spectrometric observations of "polywater". The "polywater" samples were produced within silica capillaries. These capillaries were heated by means of a helical coil to vaporize the "polywater". The vapor was directed into the source of a mass spectrometer. The results of this study show that a significant portion of the "anomalous water" samples is composed of a polymer of dimethylsiloxane. To date, the observations are not complete enough to determine if this polymer is the main constituent of anomalous water. The question is still open as to whether the polymer of dimethylsiloxane is a contaminant or synthesized in the silica capillaries"--Abstract, page ii.
