. ‥ and not a drop to drink. Water is not restricted to moderate temperatures and low pressures, but can exist at up to very high temperatures, far above its critical point (CP). In this supercritical regime water can be gradually compressed from gas-like to liquid-like densities (see picture; S=solid, L=liquid, G=gas, TP=triple point). The resulting dense supercritical states have tunable solvent properties which form the basis for innovative technologies.
