Uploaded on Jun 24, 2014See the full experiment here: http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/lab/experiments/oil-spill-polymerJust imagine if the solution to an oil spill was this simple: Sprinkle a small amount of a non-toxic powder onto the layer of oil and in seconds the powder bonds to the oil, forming a sponge-like material that can be easily removed from the surface of the water. It's more than just a dream... a new form of superabsorbent polymer technology is changing the way environmental scientists approach oil spills and waste management problems. The results are amazing! Want more experiments like this?
