I wish to find a method by which to safely breakdown hydrosilica aerogels within the human body.
oxidizers seem to do the trick specificly ozone yet ozone is apparently not a safe chemical within the biological system.
iodine is a relativly safe oxidizer yet i am uncertain as to wether it breaks down silicate gels.
would be a candidate ,study here regarding hydrogen peroxide and silicate gelshttp://cat.inist.fr/?aModele=afficheN&cpsidt=18052874http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_o ... 65d5dfbed1
Both the DSC results and the stability tests have shown that the molecular water present in the pores stabilizes the composite, probably through improving the binding of the H2O2 molecules onto the silica surface.
so no luck there....
silica gels react strongly with hydrogen fluoride, fluorine, oxygen difluoride, chlorine trifluoride.
however these compounds are poisonous to the human biological system so are not usefull.
the resonant cyclotronic frequency of the silicate gel could be targeted with EM waves which would disintegrate its molecular structure,but such a breakdown process could be violent and result in cellular damage.
or perhaps ionizing the silica gells,scrambling thier ionic charge would result in such a breakdown...specificly targeting the gel inside the body with an ionizing current or EM wave could be a problem however.
such an experiment was undertaken here,http://www.springerlink.com/content/w660g88x46730862/
