This communication is a short follow-up-note to two recent publications: Mayer F “Exclusion Zones” in Biological Cells? Swift Journal of Medicine and Medical Sciences 1 (3) pp. 018 – 022 (October 2015-1) and Mayer F Plant Polysaccharide Gels – Some Properties and Applications in Irrigation Systems, Horticulture, and Soil Protection. Swift Journal of Agricultural Research, Vol 1 (5) pp. 047 - 048 October 2015-2. In the first of these two communications, a short description of “Fourth Phase Water” (“Liquid Crystalline Water”) and of “Exclusion Zones” is presented. Pollack and his group, Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington, Seattle hypothesize that “exclusion zones” – their discovery -, formed on hydrophilic surfaces in water-containing objects and excluding any kind of solutes, are not composed of bulk water, but of water with a so-far unknown structural organization (Pollack 2013). This feature appears to confer to this kind of water surprising properties, e.g., as mentioned above, the capability to form “exclusion zones”. It is generally expected that these new findings will have remarkable impact on new approaches and developments (Pollack 2013, Mayer 2015).
