Can you boil healing stages in a bottle?
A new bottle of oil-based, non-toxic water cleanser can help prevent the common, and deadly, side effects of some common waterborne infections, such as flus and dengue fever.
The invention of the bottle came from Dr. David Zwirner, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona who specializes in studying how microbial life forms in water.
“The bottle was a very elegant design that has a very interesting chemical property,” he told Ars.
“I’ve never seen anything like it.”
The bottle is basically a bowl with a glass bottom and a top that houses an atomically sealed tube of liquid that acts as a filter.
The tube is placed over the top of the bowl, which then passes through a process called evaporation to remove the water from the bowl.
Zwirners team developed the bottle in a lab using an ultra-thin, biocompatible material called polyethylene glycol, which is widely used in products including shampoo and body lotion.
A bottle of purified water that can be boiled in a container can be made with a high-quality non-animal source of water and a non-invasive method that only requires a few drops of oil, Zwissner said.
In addition to being non-sulfur, the water has a lower boiling point than ordinary water, which makes it easier to use in water filtration systems.
According to the American Chemical Society, there are several types of purified drinking water that use purified water as their primary ingredient.
One of those is the highly purified water known as purified water with added chlorine.
Another is purified water, with a lower alkaline pH and less acidity than regular tap water.
The pH of purified waters varies widely, from 8.5 to 9.5, according to the APS.
While the bottle’s bottle is made of plastic, the process of boiling it in a water bath can be performed using a water filter, and Zwirs method uses a solvent.
Although the process was a step up from a conventional water filter that is typically made of water, Zwinner said he thinks it is possible to use the process to make a bottle of clean water that could be used in tap water filters, which are generally made of a plastic.
The bottle’s process is already being used in other areas.
In 2011, scientists from Stanford University created a plastic bottle that would be more easily and quickly recycled than traditional water filters.
Researchers at the New Zealand Institute of Technology and the University at Buffalo have used the process on the prototype of a water filter that they hope will be a boon to communities in Buffalo, New York.
As for the bottle itself, it’s designed to withstand temperature extremes, and will have an average lifespan of a few months.
