About Colloidal Silver
Colloidal silver is a term that in the past was applied to a variety of materials, such as compounds. The term colloid was used even when it was not really accurate in terms of current scientific understanding.
The reason the term colloid was used to describe materials that would no longer apply, was a result of an attempt in the past, to classify "the phenomenal state of" materials that otherwise escaped normal classifications and descriptions during that time.
As a result, the name colloid was misapplied to a wide variety of materials that where vastly and fundamentally different than what is now known as a colloid, and have since then been given more accurate scientific descriptions and names.
Even though science has now clarified the distinctions with regard to the proper use of the term colloid, the name and or term colloid that ensued from these earlier scientific errors, sometimes, even too-often are repeated in present, even by otherwise professional agencies and individuals. For example, the truth regarding what the term colloidal means, is a description for "the state" that a material exists in conjunction with a second material (medium) not strictly the silver by itself. In other words the state of the silver and the water together describes a colloidal-system.
Colloidal silver, sometimes misspelled as collodial, coloidal, colloidial and collodel, is a term that developed out of an attempt to describe particles in suspension in a liquid, which remained evenly in suspension, and under close observation also appeared to be in constant-motion as the cause for being and remaining evenly distributed.
The length of time the particles remain in suspension is regarded as stability, which is now measured as zeta-potential.
Our equipment is used to infuse pure-silver into distilled water, as the dispersion medium, and no other material, agent or ingredient is added before or after the process. Thus the most literal description of what is produced via our equipment is quite literally: silver mineral water.
Silver in a colloidal-state as it applies to what our equipment does, in truth, is still only pure silver in water, albeit the particles of silver that constitute the mineral water ar in a special size and state. The particles, being evenly dispersed and stable in terms of remaining in suspension, are accurately and specifically described as being in a colloidal state. The silver is not materially changed into another form of matter, nor does it become a compound. It is simply silver infused into pure water as the dispersion medium.
We have bottles of our silver dispersions that have been in storage for more than 10 years, that when later tested, are within 1 ppm of when they were created, thus the Colloid Master produces a very stable colloidal dispersion.
The colloidal state is accomplished by our equipment, via regulating and maintaining the size of the particles of silver being infused into the water, by maintaining a silver particle size of 0.1 to 0.001 microns, with the highest concentration in the 1 - 10 nm range extending to the 10 – 100 nm range, and remaining below 1 micron. Particles that are smaller than 1 micron is the requirement to accurately match the true definition of being a colloid. A micron is one millionth of a meter.

"Colloid n A particle in the size range 10 - 10 m, or, roughly in the range from molecular size to that visible under high magnification. The definition must be regarded as rather arbitrary. colloidal adj. See Graham, Thomas."

This definition is one of the most accurate I have found with regard to how the term is used generally speaking, because depending on the material involved the term colloidal is used rather arbitrarily to describe the colloidal state of matter.
Different substances have different physical attributes in different dispersion mediums, and different size particle clusters of the same element or substance often have completely different attributes to clusters of different sizes, even in the same dispersion medium.
Many things can be considered colloidal, human cells, plant cells, pathogens, clay used as casting slip in ceramics, polymer latex, nano particles, emulsions, micro-emulsions, liposomes, paints, inks, cosmetics, self leveling concrete, and of course colloidal silver, just to name a few generalizations.
Many industries employ colloidal chemistry, such as paper mills, electronic component manufacturing, geology, pharmacology, medicine, food industry, water purification etc.
A generalization in terms of all colloidal industries, is that a colloidal particle ranges from 1 nanometer to particles as large as 30 microns.
Normally it is presumed that particles are ultimately only truly considered colloidal when they are in a liquid (dispersion medium). The dispersion medium that the particles are in can be anything from water, oils to organic solvents.
Colloidal silver is generally considered to be particles in the range of 0.6nm (nanometers) to one Micron. A nanometer is one billionth of a meter.
Ionic silver: ions are single atoms of silver that are missing an electron and are therefore smaller than a normal atom, ions are not considered mono atomic (monoatomic) aka (monatomic). Single silver atoms are about 0.288 nm in diameter.
Colloidal particles, when they are in a liquid (dispersion medium), result in an interaction of the particle cluster surface charge, with ions of opposite charge (gegenions or counterions) in the dispersion medium, a double layer of ions is formed.
Put another way an electrokinetic phenomena is manifest in the form of a charge on the surface of the particle cluster, that then attracts ions of the opposite charge, and pulls them close to the surface of the particle cluster, creating a double layer of oppositely charged ions.
The charge at the surface of the particle may be an inherent attribute of the particles in the cluster, or may result from an interaction between the particles and the dispersion medium.
Depending on the substance considered a colloid, the double layer may be divided into the Stern Layer (close to the particle) and the Gouy - Chapman layer, which extends into the dispersion medium.
The term colloidal silver generally includes messo particles that are less than one nanometer (nm), up to 10 nanometers in diameter. Therefore a more current definition of colloidal silver includes messo particles (less than one nanometer) up to but not exceeding particles that are one micron in size.
The random repulsion of like charged ions at the surface of the double layer of a particle cluster, combined with random fluctuations in the density of the liquid dispersion medium, cause the particles to be dispersed, spinning around in what is know as "Brownian Motion" named after the Scottish botanist Robert Brown, who was one of the first to focus on the phenomena, and whose name-sake the term is coined from.
In 1827 by Mr. Brownian observed random movement and erratic oscillation of pollen grains in a liquid and his documentation and observations gave rise to the term Brownian motion. An example of the observed phenomena could be likened to how dust particles appear when seen moving in the air within a beam of light , in this case the dust that shows up in the beam of light is within water.
The internet abounds with information that sometimes speaks to the idea of super natural silver attributes, to us it is not surprising that nature is super by its nature, the natural universal is fascinating, the science-fact of today was often yesterdays science-fiction.
