The Science

BEHIND ODEGON

It Traps Odour...

With roots in military protection, the technology in Odegon products is based on a special type of nano-porous material that traps odour molecules using a completely inert, chemical-free process. As a result of the Van der Waals force, odour molecules are trapped and retained leaving nothing but fresh smelling air.

Van der Waals (named after the Dutch scientist Johannes Diderik van der Waals) is a short range intermolecular force found throughout nature and is very effective at trapping odour causing molecules. Our nano-porous carbon-based material utilises this novel property to great effect as illustrated below.
