We found some relevant exothermic excess heats of mixing, and higher conductivity than those of the untreated solvent.

Abstract

The “extremely diluted solutions”, anomalous solutions prepared through the iteration of a process of dilution and succussion, have been studied with the aim of obtaining information about the influence of the preparation method on the water structure of the solutions. We measured the heats of mixing of basic solutions with such “extremely diluted solutions”, and their electrical conductivity, comparing with the analogous heats of mixing, electrical conductivity of the solvent. We found some relevant exothermic excess heats of mixing, and higher conductivity than those of the untreated solvent. The heats of mixing and electrical conductivity show a good correlation, underlining a single cause for the behaviour of the extremely diluted solutions.
