Ohio State University Researchers Develop Bottle That Empties To The Last Drop

June 26, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Ohio State University researchers have developed a bottle that lets soap products, including shampoo, hand soap, and laundry detergent, pour out completely to the last drop. Described in a paper to be published in the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society on June 27, 2016, the patent-pending technology involves lining a plastic bottle with microscopic y-shaped structures that hold the soap droplets above tiny air pockets. Research leaders and engineers Bharat Bhushan and Philip Brown found a solution that works on polypropylene, the most commonly used plastic in packaging of food and household products.
