Why Would Bottled Water Not Freeze?

Bottled water doesn’t freeze because it is a liquid. In order to freeze, liquid needs to be solid. For something to become frozen, the liquid would have to crystallize from a liquid into a solid. It can’t do that because of the increased surface energy at the space-water interface between the sugar molecules and hydrogen bond network on one side and plastic spheres on another side which repel each other. Pretty cool huh?
Many countries sell chilled bottled drinks rather than ice cold or freezing bottled drink which has been an innovation that has taken off as people were demanding healthier products with less chemicals in them as well as less preservatives such as sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate.
