The surface tension of supercooled demineralized water in liquid state was measured using the elevation capillary method. Glass capillaries with an inner diameter from 0.35 mm to 0.20 mm were taken. The measurement was carried out from the ambient temperature down to -12 °C at normal pressure. The measured values of the surface increasing tension at decreasing temperature were compared with published experimental data and with the current IAPWS equation.
