Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP)

Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP)

A superabsorbent polymer (SAP) is a water-absorbing polymer that can absorb and retain extremely large amounts of a liquid relative to its own mass. Water-absorbing polymers, which are classified as hydrogels when mixed, absorb aqueous solutions through hydrogen bonding with water molecules. A SAP’s ability to absorb water depends on the ionic concentration of the aqueous solution.
