Bob Greska, Founder and CEO of Greska’s Carbon-60 says: “We pack a lot of Carbon 60 into our product. There are two methods of getting the Carbon 60 into the oil. One is dissolving the carbon 60 into solution, showing clear. The other method is suspending the carbon 60 as a colloidal suspension, showing black.
In this installment we will walk you through the steps that led us to the conclusion that Greska’s Carbon-60, does contain C60, both in solution and in colloidal suspension.
So why does Greska’s Carbon-60 Organic look black straight out of the bottle? That’s because Greska’s Carbon 60 is both a dissolved solution and a colloidal suspension. How did we come to that conclusion?
First, let’s learn more about the differences between a dissolved solution, a suspension and a colloidal suspension.
Angstrom (Å), unit of length used chiefly in measuring wavelengths of light, equal to 10−10 metre, or 0.1 nanometer. It is named for the 19th-century Swedish physicist Anders Jonas Ångström. 10Å equals 1 nanometer
C60 Molecule is a Colloid
“Because we have C60 in a Solution and an abundance in a colloidal suspension, I believe this is what makes our product work so well.” said CEO Bob Greska.
Here is a test you can do at home to see whether something is a solution or a suspension. As we know, salt looks like white crystals. But, when you stir salt into a glass of water the salt becomes transparent as it goes into solution. If you keep adding salt to the glass of water, at a certain point, you will over-saturate the glass with salt. The excess salt will no longer dissolve into solution and start to collect at the bottom of the glass. Now if you stir the glass, the liquid will temporarily become a cloudy white color. After a short amount of time, the excess salt in suspension will again collect at the bottom. The salt in solution will again show clear.
NASA Science: The Physics of Orange Juice
According to an article by NASA, some colloidal suspensions need to be mixed or stirred after prolonged periods where the denser particles begin to settle at the bottom due to gravity. For example: orange juice and paint, even our product after about a year will show evidence of the colloidal suspension settling. To get the C60 back into colloidal suspension give the bottle a good shake for about 30 seconds.
But, we needed to further explore this in our own testing. So, here’s what we did: We took 21 small bottles and filled them with approximately one teaspoon of our organic sunflower oil. We then added our raw C-60 powder to the first bottle of our organic sunflower oil and the solution remained clear. In the second bottle we added an additional incremental amount of our raw C-60 powder, this also remained clear. We kept adding incremental amounts to the following bottles. As one would imagine, the first bottle was transparent. The second bottle was also transparent. By bottle No. 5, the mixture began to turn dark. By bottle No. 21 we had reached our full concentration of our product. The mixture was the familiar black color that Greska’s Carbon-60’s loyal customers have come to expect.
C60 Sunflower Oil DemonstrationAnother question that might come up—can C60 in oil be both a solution and a colloidal suspension? We would answer YES! Some examples of a substance being both a solution and a suspension at the same time are:
Remember…some colloidal suspensions need to be mixed or stirred after prolonged periods where the particles begin to settle at the bottom due to gravity, for example: orange juice and paint, even our product after about a year will show evidence of the colloidal suspension settling.
In conclusion, we our product is super concentrated, having both a solution and colloidal suspension.
