Chinese team: Use superabsorbent carbon nanotube sponges on oil spills

By / May 28, 2010

Imagine a lightweight durable floating sponge for use at an ocean oil spill that attracts only oil, expands to hold nearly 200 times its weight and 800 times the volume of the stuff, moves automatically towards higher concentrations of the oil and can be squeezed clean and reused dozens of times. The stuff of high-tech…
