Physical-Chemical Properties of Mountain Water From Bulgaria Influenced by a Fullerene Containing Mineral Shungite and Aluminosilicate Mineral Zeolite

Ignat Ignatov Oleg Mosin


We studied the physical-chemical properties of mountain water from Bulgaria influenced by the fullerene analogous, carbon containing natural mineral shungite from Zazhoginskoe deposit in Karelia (Russian Federation) and the microporous crystalline aluminosilicate mineral zeolite (Most, Bulgaria) for evaluation of the mathematical model of interaction of these minerals with water. The data about the structure and composition were obtained with using of gas-chromatography, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and IR-spectroscopy. For evaluation of the mathematical model of interaction of these minerals with water, the methods of non-equilibrium spectrum (NES) and differential non-equilibrium spectrum (DNES) of water were applied. The average energy (∆EH...O) of hydrogen Н…O-bonds among individual molecules H2O after treatment of shungite and zeolite with water was measured at -0.1137 eV for shungite and -0.1174 eV for zeolite. The calculation of ∆EH...O for shungite with using DNES method compiles +0.0025±0.0011 eV and for zeolite -1.2±0.0011 eV. The obtained results indicated on the different mechanisms of interaction of these minerals with water, which is determined by their structure and the composition of constituent components, resulting in a different physical-chemical behavior when interacting with water.
