How can all the ingredients in Morgellons could come in the same package? Hydrogels, Micelles, Dendrimers. It comes with its own super glue. Drug delivery systems involve polymer that biodegrades and some form permanent networks which use the hydrogen and oxygen from the victims own body to reassemble continually by synthetic control.
VOCABULARY:
Amorphous: Materials with disordered structure
Condensation growth: Two molecules combine to form one single molecule, with the loss of one small molecule.
Controlled degradation: The polymer comes apart gradually (biodegradable).
Copolymer: Two polymers in a matrix (tripolymer-3 polymers).
Cross-linked polymer: Bonds that link one polymer chain to another to promote a difference in the composite matrix.
Glycolic acid: Used for face peels.
Hydrophilic: Loves water
Hydrophobic: Hates water
Lactic acid: Produced during rigorous exercise.
Ligand: Substance able to bind to and form a complex with a biomolecule to serve a biological purpose.
Lower toxicity: Less damage is done to body.
Molecular Synthesis: Creating synthetic molecules
Monomer: See Video at 1:00 minute
Polymer: Many monomers attached (linear at 1:00 min)
Specific absorption: Only specific molecules cross cell membrane.
Stepwise growth: Monomers react to form first dimers, trimers, oligomers and eventually long chain polymers.
Time Release: Drug delivered over a period of time instead of all at once in a burst.
