The Electrolyzed Water | The science at home

Must Read

Market Desk (science): Electrolyzed water (EOW, ECA – electrolyzed oxidizing water, electro-activated water) is produced by the electrolysis of ordinary tap water containing dissolved sodium chloride. The resulting water can be used as a disinfectant.

When Force of Nature passes an electrical charge through the salt (NaCl) solution, the sodium separates from chloride. Chloride is negatively charged and is attracted to the positive side of the electrical charge where it bonds with oxygen and hydrogen from the water. It gets converted from Cl- to HOCl.

Hypochlorous acid is so gentle and effective; it’s also used in wound healing products and other healthcare products.

The sodium is positive and thus attracted to the negative charge, where it also bonds with oxygen and hydrogen and is electrochemically converted to sodium hydroxide or NaOH. The vinegar is the key to getting just the right pH. It’s the hypochlorous acid that makes the solution so gentle compared to cleaning with bleach. And this chemistry used to only happen in industrial size tanks until Force of Nature miniaturized this technology into a little countertop appliance.

Now we know that the active ingredient in Force of Nature is hypochlorous acid. It’s the same substance our WBC produce to fight infection.

EOW will kill spores and many viruses and bacteria. Electrolysis units sold for industrial and institutional disinfectant use and for municipal water treatment are known as chlorine generators.

 It’s advises that Electrolyzed alkaline ionized water loses its potency, so it cannot be stored for long. But, acidic ionized water can be stored indefinitely.
