    I am going to be doing a science experiment with my Spanish-speaking students in which we will be testing the effectiveness of different sorbents to absorb oil. A sorbent is a material that is good at absorbing liquids. Is there a word for sorbent in Spanish?

    I agree with Oldy Nuts. I had a little bit of a problem finding the word in English. It seems it's used in Chemistry??
