Abstract

We present results of a series of experiments performed on LiBr, 6H 20 from room temperature down to 172 K ≈ 1.2Tg. These ultrasound, Brillouin and depolarized light scattering, and transient grating experiments show that, above 215 K, this solution behaves like supercooled water: its zero frequency sound velocity C0 continuously decreases with decreasing temperature, and the reorientational dynamics of the water molecules can be directly detected at some temperatures of this domain. Conversely, below 215 K, a new regime sets in, where the apparent C0 is practically temperature independent and where a , Arrenhius like, relaxation process coexists with the usual, Vogel-Fulcher like, relaxation process of the supercooled liquid. These results are similar to those recently obtained in LiCl, 6H2O. The onset of the new regime is possibly due to an increase of the interaction of the water molecules with a neighboring Li ion when lowering the temperature. We also compare our results with published dielectric data on water solutions of glass forming polyalcohols. Some of them present a low temperature splitting of their relaxation time similar to what is found in LiBr, 6H2O. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
