Carbonaceous Fullerene Containing Mineral Shungite. Research of Influence of Shungite on Mountain Water

Ignat Ignatov, Oleg Mosin

Abstract


We studied the composition and structural properties of amorphous, uncrystallized, fullerene analogous carbon containing natural mineral shungite from Zazhoginskoe deposit in Karelia (Russian Federation) and microporous crystalline aluminosilicate mineral zeolite (Most, Bulgaria). There are submitted data about the nanostructure, obtained with using of transmission electron microscopy (TEM-method), IR-spectroscopy (NES and DNES-method), as well as composition and physical chemical properties of these minerals. The average energy (?EH... O) of hydrogen ?…O-bonds among individual molecules H2O after treatment of shungite and zeolite with water is 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. This result suggests the restructuring of ?EH... O values among H2O molecules with a statistically reliable increase of local maximums in DNES-spectra. Also are demonstrated the prospects of using shungite, possessing high absorption, catalytic and bactericidal activity, as an adsorbent in water-treatment, water purification, and other industries.
