Water is necessary for the biology we've observed, but pure water itself is not alive. The study of pure water falls under chemistry, not biology. Of course, once you have pond scum all that changes and it's biology all the way down.

First of all, biology is scientific discipline, so no, water is not biology. If you meant whether is it alive or subject of study of biology, that's something different. It's not alive, but some biologists may be interested in some aspects of water.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

from a chemistry persepective all bio molecules need water for their reaction to occur.
