Abstract

Naphthalene and 2-naphthol are two naphthalene derivatives, which play important roles in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of biofield energy treatment on the isotopic abundance of 13C/12C or 2H/1H and 18O/16O in naphthalene and 2-naphthol using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Naphthalene and 2-naphthol samples were divided into two parts: control and treated. The control group remained as untreated, while the treated group was subjected to Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment. The treated samples were subdivided into four parts named as T1, T2, T3 and T4. Control and treated samples were characterized using GC-MS. The GC-MS data revealed that the isotopic abundance ratio of 13C/12C or 2H/1H, (PM+1)/PM and 18O/16O, (PM+2)/PM were increased significantly in treated naphthalene and 2-naphthol (where PM-primary molecule, (PM+1) isotopic molecule either for 13C or 2H and (PM+2) is the isotopic molecule for 18O). The isotopic abundance ratio of (PM+1)/PM in the treated T2 samples of naphthalene and 2-naphthol was increased up to 129.40% and 165.40%, respectively as compared to their respective control. However, the isotopic abundance ratio of (PM+1)/PM in the treated T1, T3 and T4 samples of naphthalene was decreased by 44.41%, 33.49% and 30.3%, respectively as compared to their respective control. While in case of 2-naphthol, the isotopic abundance ratio of (PM+1)/PM was decreased by 39.57% in T1 sample and then gradually increased up to 9.85% from T3 to T4 samples. The isotopic abundance ratio of (PM+2)/PM in treated T2 sample of 2-naphthol was increased up to 163.24%, whereas this value was decreased by 39.57% in treated T1 sample. The GC-MS data suggest that the biofield energy treatment has significantly altered the isotopic abundance of 2H, 13C in naphthalene and 2H, 13C and 18O in 2-naphthol as compared to the control.

Conclusion

In summary, naphthalene and 2-naphthol were studied under the influence of biofield energy treatment and significant change in isotope abundance of 2H, 13C, and 18O in treated samples as compared to the control was observed. The percent change in isotope abundance ratio of 13C/12C or 2H/1H in treated naphthalene was increased up to 129.40% as compared to the control. However, the isotope abundance ratio of 13C/12C or 2H/1H and 18O/16O in 2-naphthol was increased up to 165.40% and 163.24%, respectively for treated samples. Similar trend was observed in changing the isotopic abundance ratio from T1 to T4 samples of both the molecules after the biofield energy treatment. The increased isotopic abundance ratio after biofield energy treatment (T2) of naphthalene and 2-naphthol molecules may increase the bond stability which will reduce photosensitive reactions initiated by heat, light and molecular oxygen.
