What is Water?

Water is normally a clear, odorless, and tasteless liquid. Water (H2O) is a common ingredient used in pharmaceutical manufacturing, processing and in prescription and over-the-counter products. Additionally, many formulations, such as sterilized water, water for inhalation and sterile water for injection are products often used in the clinical or hospital setting.[1]
