Do medical grade activated carbons really contain heavy metals? It would seem that they do and that when they are in the metal oxide form, they are hardy to detect via the ICP-MS gold standard. Can activated carbon keep the metal oxide from getting into plants and/or earth worms? It depends on the soil type, but not really.
This post is going to take a different approach to other Do It Yourself (DIY) protocols for making activated carbon. Let's say you want to use it for mercury, or other heavy metal detox. What needs to be present in this DIY AC? What the hell is caronization? Who are some main suppliers of AC… Continue reading DIY Activated Carbon

Zirconium oxide is used by research scientists to isolate phosphopeptides. Aumina can do the job too. Zirchrom makes specialized columns for isolating phospho proteins. Lewis acids are chemicals that have empty orbitals and can accept electron pairs from Lewis Bases, which has a highly localized HOMO (The Highest Occupied Molecular Orbital) that can donate an… Continue reading Metal oxide chemistry
