Cleaning up oil spills with hair via Science Everyday

Adsorption of oil with hair is the adhesion of atoms, ions or molecules from a gas, liquid or dissolved solid to a surface. This process creates a film of the adsorbate on the surface of the adsorbent. What this means is that hair allows oil to coat, hence effectively absorbing it. And given the surfaceContinue reading “Cleaning up oil spills with hair via Science Everyday”
