Absorption of hazardous liquids:
Hazardous liquids can be quickly absorbed and contained for transport to safe disposal. Aqueous solutions and polar solvents can be selectively absorbed from non polar liquids.
AEP hydrophilic compounds have been developed as transducers, taking advantage of the highly reproducible and reversible properties that make them ideal as the basis of a measuring system. Preloading with indicator can give a visual indication of the solute characteristics. Click here to download published paper by Lehigh University on AEP-based transducers
Leak detection: AEP hydrophilic materials provide a mechanical action on exposure to water that will remain reliable for many years without the need for external power.
