【New publication】 Mixing hygroscopic liquid oligomers with different hydrophilicity promotes desorption of adsorbed water molecules!

Mixing polyethylene glycol, a hygroscopic liquid oligomer, with polypropylene glycol, which is more hydrophobic than polyethylene glycol, promotes the desorption of adsorbed water molecules. This is expected to lead to the development of energy-efficient adsorbents; this research is being led by Ikegawa.
