The thermodynamics and kinetics of water on cooling was investigated. It was observed that the micron-sized water droplets in a cryogenic flow tube were measured by IR spectroscopy. It was also observed that there was a increase of about 30% in the fraction of low density domains in water on cooling over the temperature range between 300 and 240 K. It was found that the dielectric relaxation times obtained from MD simulations showed that reorientations of low density molecules were slower which lead to the longer persistent of the low density domains.
