Want to help clean polluted water? It might be as easy as slipping on this bikini.
Mihri and Cengiz Ozkan, professors at the University of California, Riverside Bourns College of Engineering, along with Ph.D student Daisy Patino and Ph. D graduate Hamed Bay, developed a material named Sponge. The engineer designed it to clean up oil and chemical spills and desalinizing water.
The material, which is created from heated sucrose, has “a highly porous structure that is super hydrophobic, meaning it repels water, but also absorbs harmful contaminants,” a press release explains.
