SyBer

What is Nanotechnology?

SyBer has unique properties that allow it to excel as a phase separator, i.e., it disrupts the weak attractive forces that hold oil in solids.This ability to disrupt the weak van der Waals forces (in particular the hydrogen bonding) that cause the oil molecule to be attracted to the inorganic silicate sand material is why SyBer is so effective in separating phases.

A key aspect of this ‘phase separation’ process is the fact that SyBer acts on a nanoscale, i.e., it is truly a nanotechnology. Each molecule of an organic substance interacts with a SyBer molecule and it is this interaction on the nanoscale that disrupts the hydrogen bonding that is linking a hydrogen atom on the hydrocarbon to an oxygen molecule on the inorganic silicate.
