Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopic study in homoeopathic potentized medicines
Author(s): Dr. Tapas Kumar Bhattacharyya
During Drug-dynamization the produced mechanical energy (~ 404.3 Nm/10 strokes) is presumably transformed to the H-bonded network system of ethanol (medium) that shows the signature in IR/Raman spectral analysis. In the present work, Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) Spectroscopic studies on different homoeopathic medicines of different kingdom with various potencies have been performed and the results have been compared with that of 91% (v/v) ethanol (the medium). The broad spectrum for all cases (including ethanol) can be decomposed into three Gaussian components centered around 3275cm-1, 3395cm-1, and 3502cm-1. In pure ethanol these frequencies are the signature of the –OH groups of ethanol with strong, weak and dissociated H-bonding. Spectra for different sample medicines have the three bands but the relative percentage of population of different H-bonding for each medicine is dependent on the nature of the drug and its potency indicating that each medicine possesses an individual character in energy patterns in terms of H-bonding pattern and not in the molecular and nano particle nature.
