=============== Coacervation as inorganic molecule.and organic
Coacervate drops and layers exhibit complex structural transformations, arising from the interaction of the macromolecules concentrated therein. The process may occur in two-component and multicomponent solutions of organic and inorganic compounds. The most typical and most thoroughly studied coacervation processes are those in aqueous solutions of proteins and polysaccharides.
The process of coacervation may be either simple or complex. Simple coacervation is the result of the interaction of a dissolved polymer with a low-molecular substance (for example, gelatin with alcohol or sodium sulfate). Complex coacervationoccurs through the interaction of two polymers whose macromolecules bear opposite charges (for example, in mixing aqueous solutions of gelatin and gum arabic).
Coacervation may occur in polymer solutions containing a few tenths, or even a few hundredths, of a percent of the polymer, in which case the polymer concentration in the coacervate drops may be as high as several dozen percent. For this reason, coacervation is used as a means of concentrating and fractionating native and denatured biopolymers (in particular, water-soluble proteins) and synthetic polymers
So, the polymers are synthetic while the droplet is organic. biopolymers........... mix.....

Artificial membranes and liposomes for detection of neurotoxins. Contractor report, June 1984-May 1987
The main objective of this contract is to isolate the essential components of the nerve membrane; i.e., the components that are the target(s) of chemical warfare agents (AChE, AChR and its ion channel), and to reinsert them in an artificial membrane in such a way that the state of the neurocomponents (proteins) can be constantly monitored with the same activity. The artificial membrane will be used to impart stability to the neuroproteins and to allow simple and sensitive monitoring of their response to the environmental toxic agents.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12593664 Abstract alpha-Melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) is an endogenous linear tridecapeptide with potent antiinflammatory effects. We recently demonstrated that alpha-MSH and its C-terminal sequence Lys-Pro-Val (alpha-MSH (11-13)) have antimicrobial effects against two major and representative pathogens: Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. In an attempt to improve the candidacidal activity of alpha-MSH and to better understand the peptide structure-antifungal activity relations, we designed and synthesized novel peptide analogues. Because previous data suggested that antimicrobial effects of alpha-MSH were receptor-mediated, we chose to focus on the sequence alpha-MSH (6-13), which contains the invariant core sequence His-Phe-Arg-Trp (6-9) that is important for binding to the known melanocortin receptors and also contains the sequence Lys-Pro-Val (11-13) that is known to be important for antimicrobial activity. In this structure-activity study, we discovered several compounds that have greater candidacidal activity than alpha-MSH. The peptide [d-Nal-7,Phe-12]-alpha-MSH (6-13) was the most potent of the analogues tested. The present results are very encouraging because they show the great potential of these peptides as a truly novel class of candidacidal compounds. PMID: 12593664 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
'...The adhesive used on the underside of the Band-Aid is epoxy made from the same compounds as glue. The actual bandage is made with nylon fibers embedded into medical cloth. Cotton is used as the absorption pad covered with a thin plastic sheet with holes for ventilation..."
But latex is also made from organisms and I also think there is some connection.
Another point to consider: When I went to the derm two months ago (I think) because of my facial lesion that got out of control (I've read that because Lyme or Candida lesions are non-infectious, pussing lesions, they are still an opening to the skin and system and therefore prime target for opportunistic bacteria like Staph (which is what happened to me)), I put several bandaids on my face to hide the ugliness and did not have a reaction.
When I had a new tick I pulled from my side, THAT was when I had the reaction. Never beforehand.
So, it could have been the epoxy, which is different from the latex, but at the same time, I am allergic to latex as well.
See: Los Alamos Bug.... for furthering the micelle/proteinoid issue. Sorry Maggie, but, I think you understand? SMILE!
I know you were talking about C. Albicans, which I am sure the Spitzenkorper is involved. Keeps making the forms. the podosporas..
And the gum arabic and there is epoxy, terpenoids from pine and other sap epoxy as well.
Dr. Harvey had mentioned the pine tree........ once........ I do not know if it was the pine bug, or the pine sap.........
So, latex, is from rubber tree sap........
Natural rubber latex has been in widespread use for over a century. Reports of immediate hypersensitivity to latex have increased dramatically since the first case was reported (in English) in 1979.1 Sixteen deaths occurred in association with the use of a latex barium enema tip, leading to the recall of the device in 1991 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)2 and an increase in awareness of the risk of a life-threatening type I allergy associated with natural latex devices. Ten to 17 percent of health care workers have already become sensitized, and over 2 percent have occupational asthma as a result of latex exposure.3
These include the following: the adhesive hydroabietic acid (an industrial derivative of colophony); a glycerol ester of hydrogenated abietic acid; a wood rosin derivative used as an adhesive; tricresyl phosphate, a plasticizer in a vinyl backing; 2,5-di(tertiary-amyl)hydroquinone, antioxidant in an adhesive; benzoyl peroxide, used to increase the stretch potential of some adhesive tapes; epoxy resin, used to promote adhesion in an adhesive; acid, dodecyl maleamic acid and octadecyl maleamic both adhesives; diethyldithiocarbamate, a preservative in an adhesive; tetrahydrofurfuryl acrylate, used as an adhesive; and p-tertbutylphenol formaldehyde resin, an acrylate polymer used as a contact adhesive owing to its flexibility, strength, and rapid onset of action.[11,12]
Hope that helps... narrow it down.. ... or this.......

Epoxy or polyepoxide is a thermosetting polymer formed from reaction of an epoxide "resin" with polyamine "hardener". Epoxy has a wide range of applications, including fiber-reinforced plastic materials and general purpose adhesives.
o Paints and coatings o Adhesives o Industrial tooling and composites o Electrical systems and electronics o Consumer and marine applications o Aerospace applications o Art o Wind Energy applications
Epoxy is a copolymer; that is, it is formed from two different chemicals. These are referred to as the "resin" and the "hardener". The resin consists of monomers or short chain polymers with an epoxide group at either end. Most common epoxy resins are produced from a reaction between epichlorohydrin and bisphenol-A, though the latter may be replaced by similar chemicals. The hardener consists of polyamine monomers, for example Triethylenetetramine (TETA). When these compounds are mixed together, the amine groups react with the epoxide groups to form a covalent bond. Each NH group can react with an epoxide group, so that the resulting polymer is heavily crosslinked, and is thus rigid and strong.
The process of polymerization is called "curing", and can be controlled through temperature and choice of resin and hardener compounds; the process can take minutes to hours. Some formulations benefit from heating during the cure period, whereas others simply require time, and ambient temperatures.
History The first commercial attempts to prepare resins from epichlorohydrin were made in 1927 in the United States. Credit for the first synthesis of bisphenol-A-based epoxy resins is shared by Dr. Pierre Castan of Switzerland and Dr. S.O. Greenlee of the United States in 1936. Dr. Castan's work was licensed by Ciba, Ltd. of Switzerland, which went on to become one of the three major epoxy resin producers worldwide. Ciba's epoxy business was spun off and later sold in the late 1990s and is now the advanced materials business unit of Huntsman Corporation of the United States. Dr. Greenlee's work was for the firm of Devoe-Reynolds of the United States. Devoe-Reynolds, which was active in the early days of the epoxy resin industry, was sold to Shell Chemical (now Hexion, formerly Resolution Polymers and others).
Applications The applications for epoxy-based materials are extensive and include coatings, adhesives and composite materials such as those using carbon fiber and fiberglass reinforcements (although polyester, vinyl ester, and other thermosetting resins are also used for glass-reinforced plastic). The chemistry of epoxies and the range of commercially available variations allows cure polymers to be produced with a very broad range of properties. In general, epoxies are known for their excellent adhesion, chemical and heat resistance, good-to-excellent mechanical properties and very good electrical insulating properties. Many properties of epoxies can be modified (for example silver-filled epoxies with good electrical conductivity are available, although epoxies are typically electrically insulating). Variations offering high thermal insulation, or thermal conductivity combined with high electrical resistance for electronics applications, are available.
Paints and coatings Two part epoxy coatings were developed for heavy duty service on metal substrates and use less energy than heat-cured powder coatings. These systems use a 4:1 by volume mixing ratio, and dry quickly providing a tough, UV resistant , protective coating with excellent hardness. Their low volatility and water clean up makes them useful for factory cast iron, cast steel, cast aluminum applications and reduces exposure and flammability issues associated with solvent-borne coatings. They are usually used in industrial and automotive applications since they are more heat resistant than latex-based and alkyd-based paints.
Polyester epoxies are used as powder coatings for washers, driers and other "white goods". Fusion Bonded Epoxy Powder Coatings (FBE) are extensively used for corrosion protection of steel pipes and fittings used in the oil and gas industry, potable water transmission pipelines (steel), concrete reinforcing rebar, et cetera. Epoxy coatings are also widely used as primers to improve the adhesion of automotive and marine paints especially on metal surfaces where corrosion (rusting) resistance is important. Metal cans and containers are often coated with epoxy to prevent rusting, especially for foods like tomatoes that are acidic. Epoxy resins are also used for high performance and decorative flooring applications especially terrazzo flooring, chip flooring and colored aggregate flooring.
Epoxy adhesives are a major part of the class of adhesives called "structural adhesives" or "engineering adhesives" (that includes polyurethane, acrylic, cyanoacrylate, and other chemistries.) These high-performance adhesives are used in the construction of aircraft, automobiles, bicycles, boats, golf clubs, skis, snowboards, and other applications where high strength bonds are required. Epoxy adhesives can be developed to suit almost any application. They can be used as adhesives for wood, metal, glass, stone, and some plastics. They can be made flexible or rigid, transparent or opaque/colored, fast setting or slow setting. Epoxy adhesives are better in heat and chemical resistance than other common adhesives. In general, epoxy adhesives cured with heat will be more heat- and chemical-resistant than those cured at room temperature. The strength of epoxy adhesives is degraded at temperatures above .
Some epoxies are cured by exposure to ultraviolet light. Such epoxies are commonly used in optics, fiber optics, optoelectronics, and dentistry.
Health risks The primary risk associated with epoxy use is sensitization to the hardener, which, over time, can induce an allergic reaction. It is a main source of occupational asthma among users of plastics. Bisphenol A, which is used in epoxy resin, is a known endocrine disruptor.

What is bisphenol A?
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical produced in large quantities for use primarily in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins.[/b]
BPA has finally been under skrutiny by the FDA after years of public outcry for poisoning us. It's in the plastic bottles we drink from (when it's heated, as in sitting in a hot garage, the BPA leaks into the water), and in the cans of food. It's that glue-like substance at the rim of the can.
How many of us eat canned food? I rarely do, but even the organic soup I buy is in cans sometimes, but not obvious when I take the lid off. On the black olives, however, I recall seeing this glue even inside the olive juice and had thrown them away before I even knew it was BPA.
