What is the difference between colloidal and ionic silver?
Colloidal silver is basically a very loose "umbrella term" covering many kinds of liquid, silver-based products, including particulate silver, ionic silver, silver protein, silver citrate, silver nitrate, and others. Some people refer to the "particulate" silver solutions as "true" colloidal silver, because these solutions are composed chiefly of metallic silver particles which are suspended in a solution of pure distilled water - in essence, the very definition of a colloidal solution. The silver particles in such a solution are composed of clusters of silver atoms. The atoms in a silver particle remain held together by "Van Der Waals' force of attraction that causes identical atoms to be attracted to each other. On the other hand, ionic silver is a solution consisting of water and single atom silver ions, as opposed to clusters of single atoms. A particulate silver solution generally contains up to 90% or more silver particles, while an ionic silver solution generally contains up to 90% or more silver ions.

Ionic compounds are between metals and non-metals. Molecular(covalent) compounds are between only non-metals. (Metalliccompounds are between metals and other metals.) An ionic compound is a pure substance that is formed from a metaland a nonmetal. It has a fairly high melting point and is aconductor… of electricity when in a molten or aqueous state. A molecular compound, on the other hand, is a pure substance thatis formed from nonmetals. It has a fairly low melting point, andcannot conduct electricity regardless of state. Another important difference between the two is that an ioniccompound is a crystalline solid at standard temperature andpressure (STP), whereas a molecular compound can be in a solid, gasor liquid state at STP. Molecular compound is derived from combinations of differentmolecules while ionic compound is derived from inducing electricalcurrent into molecules. if the compound contains a metal bonded to a nonmetal, it is mostlikely an ionic compound. It the compound contains two nonmetals,it is a molecular compound. (MORE)
A covalent bond is a sharing of electrons in the outer shell. An ionic bond is a bond formed by the attraction between two oppositely charged ions.
Most people take colloidal silver hoping to cure infections, boostimmunity and prevent colds, flu and other infections. Colloidal silver is a liquid mineral supplement found in almostevery health food store in North America. It is much like mineralwater, except that in this case, the only minerals i…n the water aretiny, sub-microscopic particles of pure silver. Pure silver, by itself, has been known for thousands of years tohave powerful, broad-spectrum infection-fighting qualities. So whenthe process for making colloidal silver was discovered in the late1800's, shortly after Edison harnessed electricity, it immediatelybecame a popular infection-fighting agent, used both topically oncuts, burns and infections, and internally as a remedy for a widevariety of infectious diseases. Numerous medical studies were conducted on colloidal silverthroughout the early 1900's, and the substance was used inhospitals and laboratories around the world, in a wide variety offorms, to help fight infection and disease. Studies documenting itsphenomenal infection-fighting qualities were written up in theJournal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the Britishmedical journal Lancet, and many others. Indeed, as far back as1919, Alfred Searle, founder of the giant Searle Pharmaceuticalsfirm, had written, "Applying colloidal silver to human subjectshas been done in a large number of cases with astonishinglysuccessful results...it has the advantage of being rapidly fatal toparasites without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable. Itprotects rabbits from ten times the lethal dose of tetanus ordiphtheria toxin." How Is It Made? - Colloidal silver is made through a simpleelectromagnetic process that pulls microscopic particles of silverfrom a larger piece of pure silver immersed in water. These tinysilver particles are held in suspension in the resulting solution.When ingested, these tiny particles of silver travel throughoutyour body like any other mineral before being (supposedly) excretedthrough your normal channels of elimination. (In the case ofsilver, however, some of it will accumulate more or lesspermanently in the skin and other organs. Chronic - persistent,long term - ingestion of colloidal silver can result in argyria.) 100 Year Medical History - The simple process for producingcolloidal silver was developed shortly after Edison harnessedelectricity in 1892. It was then used for decades by doctors, in avariety of forms and under a variety of brand names, as a naturalinfection-fighting agent. But it fell out of widespread usage afterthe advent of prescription antibiotics in the 1940's. Then, in the mid-1970's colloidal silver experienced a resurgenceafter doctors discovered that many pathogens were developingimmunity to prescription antibiotics, but not to pure, elementalsilver. According to science writer Jim Powell in the March 1978issue of Science Digest, "Thanks to eye-opening research, silveris re-emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. An antibiotic killsperhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver killssome 650. Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver isvirtually non-toxic." Where Can It Be Found? - Colloidal silver is widelyavailable through health food stores and on the internet. There areliterally thousands of vendors across the United States and Canada,offering a variety of colloidal silver products for about $30 for atiny four-ounce bottle. That's quite expensive, when you considerhow quickly a tiny four-ounce bottle might be used up. Fortunately, you don't have to spend a lot of money to getcolloidal silver because you can very easily make your owncolloidal silver, at home, for about thirty six cents perquart , using a safe, simple electronic device called acolloidal silver generator. These tiny devices, frequently rangingfrom palm-sized models for travel and home use, to moresophisticated counter-top models, are available through a number ofcompanies. You can even afford to bathe in it. In fact, manyusers simply throw a quart or so of colloidal silver into thebathwater, for its soothing effects on the skin and scalp! Othersuse it in their spas or hot tubs, in place of chlorine, bromine andother harsh chemicals. Of course home operated colloidal silvergenerators yield totally unpredictable and inconsistent purity andconcentrations of colloidal silver so it's a significant case ofYMMV. Also - consumer need to beware that the device actually doeswhat it claims since the water will look pretty much the samebefore and after. The Bottom Line: - For thousands of years silver has beenrecognized as one of nature's most powerful naturalinfection-fighting agents. Presently colloidal silver is one of themost popular nutritional supplements in the world (although many -if not most- people taking it are doing so consuming assuming ithas some kine of magical cure-all properties that it simplydoesn't). If current medical research on colloidal silver finds iteffective against drug-resistant pathogens, it may well turn out tobe an important part of the solution to today's frighteninginfectious disease crisis in which multiple drug-resistantpathogens simply no longer respond to traditional prescriptionantibiotics. == This is one of the worst health frauds of modern times. It'sworthless for your health, you will end up turning yourself orwhoever your force to take it permanently blue, and there has beenat least one very ugly death from massive brain damage due to thetoxic effects. Fortunately at the dosages most people intake, itusually takes months to years to cause the worst effects. == Colloidal silver is known to be an effective "Antibiotic Adjunct,i.e. it can improve the efficacy of certain antibiotics. Itactually decreases the effectiveness of others. . Quinolone antibiotics interact with COLLOIDAL SILVER: Colloidalsilver might decrease how much antibiotic the body absorbs. Takingcolloidal silver along with antibiotics might decrease theeffectiveness of some antibiotics. Some antibiotics that mightinteract with colloidal silver include ciprofloxacin (Cipro),enoxacin (Penetrex), norfloxacin (Chibroxin, Noroxin), sparfloxacin(Zagam), trovafloxacin (Trovan), and grepafloxacin (Raxar). . Tetracycline antibiotics interact with COLLOIDAL SILVER:Colloidal silver might decrease how much tetracycline antibioticsthe body can absorb. Taking colloidal silver with tetracyclineantibiotics might decrease the effectiveness of tetracyclineantibiotics. To avoid this interaction take colloidal silver twohours before or four hours after taking tetracyclines. Sometetracyclines include demeclocycline (Declomycin), minocycline(Minocin), and tetracycline (Achromycin). . Levothyroxine interacts with COLLOIDAL SILVER: Colloidal silvermight decrease how much levothyroxine the body absorbs. Takinglevothyroxine along with colloidal silver might decrease theeffectiveness of thyroxine. . Penicillamine (Cuprimine, Depen) interacts with COLLOIDALSILVER: Penicillamine is used for Wilson's disease and rheumatoidarthritis. Colloidal silver might decrease how much penicillamineyour body absorbs and decrease the effectiveness ofpenicillamine. Recent studies have shown that silver can kill up to 650 species ofpathogenic microbes and it has shown some promise for combatingantibiotic resistant bacteria such as MRSA, especially when used totreat surfaces that may be contaminated with such bacteria. ...So - colloidal silver has some utility as an antibiotic.Unfortunately antibiotics are only effective against bacteria.Those hyping colloidal silver as anti-viral agent are either "snakeoil salesmen" (con artists) or wishful thinkers. You are muchbetter off sticking with with FDA-approved anti-viral drugs if youhave a virus. It has been proposed as a treatment or preventative for quite a fewdiseases and conditions including: . Ear infections. . Emphysema. . Bronchitis. . Fungal infections. . Lyme disease. . Rosacea. . Sinus infections. . Stomach ulcers. . Yeast infections. . Chronic fatigue syndrome. . HIV/AIDS. . Tuberculosis. . Food poisoning. . Gum disease. . Digestion. . Preventing flu and colds. Unfortunately, as of 2016, there is no reliable scientific evidencethat it helps with any of these; more evidence is needed to ratethe effectiveness of colloidal silver for these uses. Colloidal silver is not recognized as safe or effective by the FDAfor anything other than wound dressings, antibiotic creams, and asan antibiotic coating on medical devices. Colloidal silver was usedin the early 20th century for its antibacterial properties butmostly abandoned as better, more effective antibiotics weredeveloped. The 1990's saw a resurgence of the use of colloidalsilver as a supposed "cure-all" for all sorts of maladies, althoughnone of the OTC formulations are effective in treating any knowncondition and carry the risk of both permanent cosmetic sideeffects and more serious ones such as allergic reactions, as wellas interactions with prescription medications. . In August 1999, the U.S. FDA banned colloidal silver sellersfrom claiming any therapeutic or preventive value for theproduct. . In 2002, the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)found there were no legitimate medical uses for colloidal silverand no evidence to support its marketing claims. . Consumer Reports lists colloidal silver as a "supplementto avoid", describing it as "likely unsafe". Chronic intake of silver products can result in an accumulation ofsilver or silver sulfide particles in the skin. These particles inthe skin darken with exposure to sunlight, resulting in a blue orgray discoloration of the skin known as argyria. Think of it thisway - black and white photography uses the gelatin silver processwith currently available black-and-white films and printing papers.A suspension of silver salts in gelatin is coated onto a supportsuch as glass, flexible plastic or film, baryta paper, orresin-coated paper. When exposed to light it undergoes a chemicalreaction and darkens. Taking colloidal silver turns your skin intoa full-body film plate that darkens (permanently) on exposure tothe sun. Also - Increased silver levels in pregnant women have been linkedto abnormal development of the ear, face, and neck in their babies.Colloidal silver supplements can also lead to silver accumulationin the body of the baby, which can lead to argyria. Silver can alsobe deposited in vital organs, where it does serious damage. (MORE)

Gold colloids have multiple definitions. They have been used for many years as a dietary supplement (see http://www.purestcolloids.com). Gold colloids provide the body with minerals to maintain optimum health. They have been used for many years as a therapeutic for arthritis. They have also been use…d in lateral flow applications such as in pregnancy tests (see http://www.bbigold.com).. Gold nanoparticles, on the other hand, must possess properties that are specific for nanotechnology applications. Sample nanotechnology applications include Resonance Light Scattering (RLS), Surface Enhanced Raman (SERS), in-vivo photothermal cancer therapy, imaging, and diagnostics. These applications demand monodispersity in size and shape with highly reactive surfaces because these applications depend on the quality of the individual nanoparticles, not just the properties of the nanoparticles in bulk. This is the definition of nanotechnology.. In order to make gold nanoparticles suitable for these applications, the gold nanoparticles must have the following characteristics:. 1. Provide rod shapes for in vivo applications.. 2. Spherical gold nanoparticles that are not manufactured using thiol or citrate chemistry which result in unreactive, polydisperse gold nanoparticles.. 3. Conjugations that are based on solid, covalent bonds, not adsorption which can results in lost conjugations.. For gold nanoparticles see Nanopartz at http://www.nanopartz.com. (MORE)
Colloidal silver is simply very tiny particles of silver suspended in water. Often, the silver particles are micron size. "Ionic" colloidal silver is the most effective type. Colloidal silver is well known to be antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, and can be antiparasitic. It has properties whi…ch can change human cells to be used for different uses, somewhat like stem cells. This property makes it very useful for healing burns, which is probably its most common use. According to congressional testimony from American Biotech Laboratories on silver's effectiveness, only a very small amount of ionic colloidal silver, with a concentration of 2-3 ppm, is needed to stop most disease organisms. And, even the toughest organisms can be killed with a 10ppm solution. Of course, you won't hear about any of this from the FDA, or from other health agencies. Even though they have already admitted silver is effective for treating disease, is common, and safe. Observe... FDA "Silver has been known for its antimicrobial properties for decades" United Nations World Health Organization Silver is found in human diet, "up to 88 Âµg/day (Kehoe et al., 1940)." Health Canada Common foods contain silver: Wheat flour, bran, meat, ... "several hundred milligrams per kilogram, have been recorded in mushrooms" National Institutes of Health - Pub Med "Nanosilver has developed as a potent antibacterial, antifungal, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory agent. ... The targeting of cancer cells using silver nanoparticles has proven to be effective" National Institutes of Health - Pub Med "[silver colloid nanoparticles] showed high antimicrobial and bactericidal activity ... including highly multiresistant strains ... A very low concentration of silver (as low as 1.69 mug/mL Ag) gave antibacterial performance." Government of British Columbia "Silver is a disinfectant for non-spore forming bacteria at concentrations about 1000 times lower than the levels at which it is toxic to mammalian life. ...The ionic form of silver is necessary" Nursing Times "Silver Treated Products Reduce Levels of Hospital Bacterial Contamination" Journal of Infection Prevention "A mean reduction in bacterial counts of 95.8% was demonstrated" Often, these facts are dismissed. Instead, the public is terrorized by false information about skin turning blue. The fact is, it would require 26 gallons in one day of a 10ppm silver water solution for skin to turn blue. However, the disease-causing organisms die off with much less silver. Maximum daily dose of a 10ppm solution is only seven teaspoons. The body maintains populations of bacteria in the gut that are necessary for digestion. Colloidal silver, taken in large amounts, greater than the recommended dose, can affect these "friendly" bacteria, as will all antibiotics. However, ionic colloidal silver, which typically has a ratio of 85% ionic silver to 15% colloidal silver, is perfectly safe for consumption when following the recommended maximum dosage of 7 teaspoons per day of a 10ppm solution. But more importantly, ionic-colloidal silver is best absorbed internally by breathing , which can be done several times a day with a common fine-mist sprayer. The next best method is to absorb ionic colloidal silver held under the tongue for one minute, or more, but NOT by swallowing ounces of ionic colloidal silver water. The best ionic colloidal silvers can be found by searching for "85% ionic silver" . (MORE)

Without the surfactant the emulsion is unstable and will separate into two phases as a result of gravity, e.g. vinaigrette (vinegar and vegetable oil with no emulsifier) (MORE)

An ionic compound contains at least one positive ion and at least one negative ion, bonded together by this 'magnetic' attraction. A molecule is not necessarily bonded this way, for example water (H20) contains hydrogen bonds which hold it together, which are not ionic.
a colloid contains larger particles than a solution. the particles are still too small to be seen easily, but are large enough to scatter a light beam
ionic transfers electrons, coavlent shares electrons and ionic has a metal and a nonmetal while covalent has 2 nonmetals

The best ionic colloidal silver will have a ratio of 85% ionic silver to 15% colloidal silver. *To find the best ionic colloidal silver , just (google) search for "85% ionic colloidal silver" Why use ionic colloidal silver? 1. See these slide images from lab tests which show ionic form is most effective. A picture is worth a thousand words. See Sources and related links below "Particulate vs Ionic Silver" 2. See this collection of studies showing ionic silver works better than colloidal silver (silver particulates). See Sources and related links "Research on Colloidal Silver" 3. According to Canadian (BC) government, "The ionic form of silver is necessary" . See Sources and related links "Ambient Water Quality Criteria for Silver" . According to expert congressional testimony , not much silver is needed to be effective. See Sources and related links "Congressional Testimony American Biotech Laboratories" Typical uses of colloidal silver include: . Spraying, for lung or nasal infections, by inhaling deeply (use the dosage as directed on labels) . Spraying onto cuts, burns, sunburns, sores, cold sores, bandages, frequently. . Drops are used (held under the tongue for a minute or so) for internal needs. According to EPA , the daily dose believed to be safe is 350 mcg of silver daily, for up to 70 years. At this level, one can safely consume seven teaspoons daily of a 10 ppm "colloidal" silver solution. And, a 20 ppm silver solution will have a max daily dose of 3.5 teaspoons. So, you should beware of products having more than 30 ppm of silver with a dose of more than two teaspoons per day. Some products available on the Internet have a concentration in the 100 ppm or more. These high concentrations produce a greater risk of argyria (blue/gray skin) from silver accumulation. As you can see from the list of effective concentrations of silver (the Congressional Testimony) such high amounts of silver are unnecessary, since most microbes die off at well under 10 ppm of silver. 90-99% of silver is removed by the body in two days, according to animal studies (google). The remainder is removed in the following one to four weeks, so an approriate break from silver use can prevent the undesirable side-effect of blue/gray skin. According to the BC Canadian government , "Silver is a disinfectant for non-spore forming bacteria at concentrations about 1000 times lower than the levels at which it is toxic to mammalian life." See Sources and related links "Ambient Water Quality Criteria for Silver" . According to the US FDA , "Silver has been known for its antimicrobial properties for decades" See Sources and related links "FDA: 'Silver has been known for its antimicrobial properties for decades' . According to Cancer.gov Definition: antimicrobial "A substance that kills microorganisms such as bacteria or mold, or stops them from growing and causing disease." See Sources and related links "Definition: antimicrobial" . Best Hint: Look for a brand that says its completely clear in color, and mostly ionic (70% ionic or more). Yellow color is OK for short term use, but avoid darker colored products, also avoid any higher than 20 ppm, since this is an unnecessary risk for blue skin. There are no other risks for colloidal silver use. In fact, according to Health Canada (Canada's health dept), if you ate all your fruits and vegetables, everyday, especially mushrooms, you'd probably get more silver in your body than from a daily dose or two of an ionic colloidal silver. The best brands of colloidal silver typically have a ratio of 85% ionic silver. To locate the best colloidal silver products, simply search for "85% ionic colloidal silver" (MORE)

An element is a substance made up of only one type of atom, while an ionic compound is a compound containing more than one type of atom: an anion and a cation. Definitions: Atoms are made up of a dense nucleus containing positively charged particles (protons) and neutrally charged particles (…neutrons), with negatively charged particles (electrons) orbiting the nucleus in shells/orbits. Elements are substances made of only one type of atom. Elements are differentiated from each other by the amount of protons that they contain. For example, oxygen is the only element with eight protons, and is not made of any other element. Compounds are two or more different types of atoms chemically bonded together. For example, one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms bond together to form the compound CO 2 (carbon dioxide). Ions are elements with a stable valence (outer) shell/orbit. For example, the Periodic Table of the Elements will tell you that oxygen has six valence electrons (electrons in the valence shell). However, atoms with more than one shell are unstable with less than eight valence electrons. Since atoms react and bond with one another to become stable, oxygen could have two electrons transferred to it by an atom with two valence electrons (beryllium, for example). With eight electrons in its second (outer) shell, the oxygen atom would be stable. Anions are negatively charged ions. Cations are positively charged ions. (MORE)

atoms are combined by some force of attraction to form molecules ionic compounds are the substances formed by the transfering of electrons between two atoms
Well they are the same thing because a solution is a type of mixture. If there had to be a difference a colloid solution is when particles are mixed as a colloid in water but a colloid mixture could be anything: a gas colloid, a liquid colloid or a solid colloid. Or any of those three mixed together…! It is complicated but basically the difference is that one is particles spread thought mixture and one isn't. Hope it helps :) (MORE)

Crystalline precipitates have less surface area than the colloidalprecipitates, therefore they are more pure. Additionally,crystalline precipitates, because they are larger, are more easilyseparated from the surrounding solution.
the difference between ionic bonds and meals is that metals are able to be bent and ionc bonds cant bend without breaking
The difference is the degree to which the atoms forming the bond share their electrons. In an ionic bond - say, between the sodium and chlorine atoms in table salt - the chlorine atom completely dominates the interaction, taking one electron from the sodium atom. This makes the chlorine atom a nega…tively charged ion and the sodium atom a positively charged ion. The bond between them is primarily due to the electromagnetic attraction between these positively and negatively charged ions - hence the name " ionic bond". In a covalent bond - say, between the carbon and oxygen atoms in carbon monoxide - the electrons are shared much more evenly between the two atoms. True, the bonding electrons are more attracted to the oxygen atom because it has more protons in its nucleus than the carbon atom, but not to the same degree as in an ionic bond. The covalent bond between the atoms is primarily due to the stabilization that both atoms experience from this more or less even sharing of electrons. (MORE)
Covalent Bonding occurs with non-metal elements (O,N,Sr,Xe) Ionic the strongest of all the bonds is with both non and metals like (K and O)

The particles which passes through semi permeable membrane are called crystalloid. and the particles which doesn't pass through semi permeable membrane are called colloids.
In an ionic bond, there is a complete transfer of electrons between the atoms. In a covalent bond, electrons are shared. All covalent bonds occur between nonmetals that have a difference in electronegativities that is 1.7 or less. An ionic bond almost always occurs between a metal and a nonmetal.
ionic bonds are where a metal and non-metal transfer an/ some electrons from one element to an other making one positive and one negative. a metallic bond is the bond between two metal elements.
a solution is a well-mixed mixture containing a solvent and at least one solute that has the same properties throughout. a colloid is a mixture containing small, undissolved particles that do not settle out.
Colloidal particles are very tiny and move around due to temperature. They do not settle. A suspension consists of relatively large particles which will settle over time. A solution has one component dissolved into the other and will not settle.
Solutions are mixtures on an atomic or molecular level; the mixture is so fine grained that you could never see it with a microscope. All you would see is a homogeneous substance.
