Super-Absorbent Nanoglass Cleans Pollutants

Some of the best scientific discoveries happen accidentally, and that's exactly what happened at Ohio's College of Wooster, where a project devoted to using nano-engineered glass powder to detect explosives instead led to the realization that the material could absorb pollutants from water. Watch this videocast to find out more about Obsorb, which swells up to many times its volume as it absorbs contaminants.
