BeschreibungPlease note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Osorb is a swellable, organically-modified silica or glass capable of absorbing volatile organic compounds and other contaminants from water. The glass was discovered by Dr. Paul L. Edmiston and is trademarked by ABSMaterials, Inc. Dr. Paul Edmiston of the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio, discovered Osorb while working on a sensor to detect trinitrotoluene. This specific glass, at the time being studied by Dr. Edmiston and an undergraduate, Colleen Burkett, exhibited a very unusual characteristic: the glass immediately swelled with the addition of neat acetone. Dr. Edmiston continues to examine Osorb's capabilities and characteristics in a variety of field applications.
