The bond valence model applies to the chemistry of liquids as well as solids. Although the bond valence model applies to all liquids (Section 6.6), the properties of aqueous solutions are particularly important. The unique properties of the hydrogen bond determine the chemistry of water (Section 6.2), aqueous solubility (Section 6.2), the hydration spheres around dissolved cations (Section 6.3), protonation of oxyanions (Sections 6.4) and the influence of acidity and alkalinity (pH) on aqueous chemistry (Section 6.5).
