The Structure of Water Induced by Specific Ceramics Treatment and Effects of Treated Water in View of Some Biological Aspects

Dept. of Applied Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Miyazaki, Japan : 2008


The structure of water induced by a high temperature sintered kaolinite ceramics treatment was studied in view of thermally stimulated depolarized current and temperature profiles (TSDC analysis) on the iced treated water and (1)H Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometry on the treated water as well as some physical propertied of the sintered ceramics. In addition, some biological effects of the treated water were examined to give indirect evidences for the proposed water structure.

The treated water were positively charged based on essentially the formation of electric double layer interface between the ceramics surface and water flow, without any absorption desorption phenomena to substances contained in water to be treated by the ceramics. The positive change was indirectly a affirmed by TSDC and (1)H NMR spectrum, probably by the apparent neutralization or accumulation of chlorine substances through interaction with positive change.

This phenomenon seemed to be closely related with the fact that absorption of chlorine ion through a vegetable root was greatly depressed when the treated water by the ceramics was used. The treated water was also proved to restrict the growth of E. coli in poor nutritional culture media and the production of bacterial cellulose by CFJ 002 (New bacterium cellulose producing microorganism, and enterobacter) stock, and to suppress the oxidation action of hydrogen peroxide.
