HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO PRODUCE OZONATED PLANT OIL?
June 6, 2019
The average time, depending on the factory’s ambient temperature and humidity, is about 4-6 weeks. Once the oil is completely ozonated, it will actually turn into a nearly clear, gel substance. The final product must be kept refrigerated at all times. Ozonated oil is actually created by a redox reaction. The ozone literally burns the oil, and three primary, organic peroxides are actually created throughout the entire process. In other words, the first peroxide created reacts a second time to produce a second peroxide, and then finally once again to form C10H18O3. The final process is quite noticeable as the entire substance will turn into a white foam. Once this white foam settles, ozonating any further is pointless, as the original oil is no longer present, and the compounds have been taken to a state that no longer reacts with ozone.
