Dispesants: A Guided Tour

How Do Dispersants Work?
Dispersants work much like the detergent soap that you use to clean grease from your dishes (but dispersants are less toxic).

These molecules attach to the oil, reducing the interfacial tension between oil and water, breaking up the oil slick, as shown below.
