adsorbent

[ad′sȯr·bənt]
(chemistry)
A solid or liquid that adsorbs other substances; for example, charcoal, silica, metals, water, and mercury.

Adsorbent

Material that is capable of binding and collecting substances or particles on its surface without chemically altering them.

adsorbent

A material (such as activated charcoal) which has the ability to extract certain substances from gases, liquids, or solids by causing the substances to adhere to its internal surface without changing the adsorbent physically or chemically.
