But water is so good as solvent that you will never see really pure water.
Let us assume one has a bootle of just made pure water: as soon as one opens it, water dissolves components of atmosphere. For instance, carbon dioxide, of interest because solving it has noticeable impact on pH of demineralized water.

I thought pure water is an isolator.

Is there electrolysis or is it ions that got into solution?

Yes, you are right. Don't drink any refrigerant. Honeywell is just saying it will not add to the green-house problem like old-school refrigerant's did.

Well, not exactly something you'd drink.

Honeywell says their Solstice ze R-1234ze is "green" (more details on their site) and IBM says that the pumping of refrigerant takes less energy than water cooling.

I would like to know the healfh effects of such refrigerant. 

With any pumped fluid through channels, we can be sure we have the added concern of mechanical stress from outside (dropping even) which might cause leaks.

Pumping coolant is also another power drain.
