REMOVAL OF OIL FROM WATER SURFACES BY SORPTION ON UNSTRUCTURED FIBERS

The capacity of unstructured fibers to remove crude oil from seawater was related to the chemical composition and surface properties of the fibers as well as the concentration, specific gravity, and temperature of the crude oil. The sorption capabilities of cotton exceeded those observed for all of the other synthetic and natural fibers tested.
