A sufficiently thin column of liquid was produced to permit penetration with a 200. keV electron beam as evidenced by the observation of diffraction rings due to the intermolecular spacing of the liquid samples. For liquid thickness below 800. nm, the diffraction rings became visible above the inelastic background. Studies were carried out in the environmental chamber of a transmission electron microscope using water and isopropanol.
