Welcome to Dr Osmosis

Hello, I am happy to be back.   And I would like to hear from you if you are reading this blog site.  Please leave a note in the comment section.     My blog site was attacked several months ago.   It is now more secure, and I will continue to review published findings about osmosis and osmosis ….  Read More

Osmosis: The Molecular Theory

Thank you for signing in to DrOsmosis.com.   We will delay public posts for awhile as we attempt to resolve the large number of attacks to our blog page.  This is not the first time I have developed Ideas that challenge the status quo.   I had an idea about the attacks I would get as I ….  Read More

Forward Osmosis

Osmosis is a natural process.   In its simplest form, water flows through the membrane into a solution.  It is important for plant and animal life.   Nutrients must enter cells and waste products leave.    Trees must bring nutrients from the soil to the upper most leaves (See: Maple Tree Details at DrOsmosis.com).    Experimenters found that a ….  Read More

OSMOSIS

One must fully understand the history to appreciate today’s textbook thermodynamic theory of osmosis.

Nobel Lecture by Jacobus H. van’t Hoff

van’t Hoff Nobel prize for his work with osmotic pressure. The theory of Osmosis is not the theory of osmotic pressure.. See Atkins applied pressure to a vessel of water raises the vapor pressure..

Osmosis History 2

Jean-Antoine “Abbe” Nollet (1700 – 1770) was a scientist and a priest.   He was noted for his scientific experiments with electricity, physics and for discovering Osmosis (1748).   He conducted a simple experiment with water, a membrane from an animal bladder, and wine.  Perhaps: he just wanted to find out why his Pee was yellow instead ….  Read More

Osmosis Experiment

What is difference between Osmosis and Diffusion?

 Osmosis is the movement of a solvent across a semi permeable membrane into a more dilute solution of the solvent.   The semi permeable membrane prevents the solute from passing through the membrane.    The original osmosis experiment used water and wine. Later experimenters found the same behavior using a sugar water solution instead of wine.    Various ….  Read More

Osmosis

After our papers on seed storage were rejected several times, we found that our design approach for seed storage warehouses was different from published works on the theory of osmosis.   We had several warehouses installed around the country.   All installations  are still working.   They are maintaining temperature and relative humidity at design conditions.    Either the ….  Read More

Covid 19 Continued

As I entered my favorite hardware store I saw multiple containers of hand sanitizer and cleaning agents on display.   Many boasted 99.9% kill rate for germs.  (The alcohol content is greater than the 60%.)   But Covid-19 is not a germ.  It is a virus.  A virus is an exceedingly small nonliving, oily particle that contains ….  Read More

Moist Air Properties

Heat and moisture enter the warehouse through the walls and with outside air, some heat and moisture may be exchanged with the seed when it is introduced to the warehouse.   An air cooler (refrigeration unit) is designed to remove heat and moisture to maintain the constant temperature relative humidity (rh) during the hot summer months.  ….  Read More
