How Does Oxygen Disassociate from Chlorine In A Stable Compound When Introduced Into A Solution…

By david / January 20, 2012

Below you will find the question I received via email today along with my fairly lame answer.

But, if you are a scientist or someone with sufficient knowledge to explain this question, please leave your answer in the comment section below.

An example of such a compound would be CLO2

Here is the question I received and the answer given:

Question:  

I had some questions concerning ingredients in some of the products you sell. If OXYD-8 is stabilized, why is it effective in delivering oxygen? What are the chemical mechanisms of sodium chlorite in the “PerioTherapy Treatment Gel/Paste?” Any information on the above is appreciated. Thanks.

Regards,

Answer:  

I appreciate your question.   I am unable to give you the chemical reasons why the oxygen disassociates from the other atoms.

I accept that it does when introduced into the environment of the mouth.

Perhaps your question would best be directed to an organic chemistry expert or perhaps even a professor at your local college?

It is impossible for me to keep up on the things that I learned over 20 years ago I am sad to say.

You’ll need to do a little research on this one to obtain the answer you are looking for.

I would suggest dropping into a local community college and seeking out  a chemistry instructor.  They will probably be more than happy to share their expertise.

Sorry that I can not give you the details you are looking for.
