The results of studies on the properties of subcritical and supercritical water are generalised. The
possibility of using such water as a solvent, a reagent or a catalyst in chemical reactions is
considered. Primary attention is paid to specific features of experimental research under
hydrothermal conditions. Prospects for use of subcritical and supercritical water in heterogeneous
catalysis for the preparation of nanocrystalline materials with predictable properties and for
solving environmental problems are discussed.
