Knowhow offering

Knowhow is available forPolymer based gels,that can absorb organic liquids and fuels
SummaryA polymer that can absorb organic solvents like methanol, ethanol and form fuel gels: -Can act as a portable fuel source. -The gel can be polymerized in situ from the selected monomers and does not require any external gelling agent. -The level of cross linking and the formation of structural complexes with the organic liquid can be controlled -Improving the absorption capacity of the gel. -1gm of this gel can absorb upto 400 gm of fuel
Advantages-Uses cheaper polymer than the existing gels -Effective, flexible, compact source of fuel -No soot, pleasant blue flame -Higher burning efficiency
