New Magnetic Soap Could Clean Oil Spills With No Suds Left Behind

Rebecca Boyle of PopSci:

"A newly designed metallic soap reacts to a magnetic field, a first in soap research that could lead to better control of cleanup chemicals in situations like aquatic oil spills. A magnet can overcome both gravity and the surface tension between water and oil to draw the soap away, ensuring it can be recovered after it’s used."

The story is too old to be commented.
