Abstract

Some problems, that perhaps have not been acknowledged before, are exposed, concerning the evaluation of partial pair correlation functions (ppcfs) of liquid water from experimental total structure factors (tsfs). To avoid the pitfalls, the Reverse Monte Carlo (RMC) modelling technique has been applied for calculating the ppcfs. The new analyses of data on ambient liquid water lead to new sets of ppcfs which differ drastically from the most widely accepted set of Soper et al.
