and how does it work?[edit]

It's funny how http://www.mgc-a.com/ageless/index-GI.html tells you about all it does, but ommits any facts such as iron. DO you have product name & Indian supplier list

this article seems to be mostly about the benefits of using oxygen absorbers and the reasons why they are used. But after reading the article, I have yet to actually learn how it works (where the oxygen goes?) - this should be covered. --76.229.180.116 (talk) 15:19, 4 July 2009 (UTC) ANSWER: the oxygen bonds with the iron filings, to form iron oxide (rust), thereby eliminating it in its free form. As this is a highly exothermic reaction (giving off heat), these same ingredients are used in hand warmers. In fact, you could use them interchangeably. And this is why so many drivers of the Chevy Vega were found dead at the wheel of their car... the high degree of rust suffocated them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pwallen1962 (talkcontribs) 07:40, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Commercial Nature[edit]

What's with all the product names - seems like a sales brochure. Are there so few of these that company names are justified? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.10.51.32 (talk) 03:42, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

There is only so much information you can add to one wiki entry. You need links to other websites which explain the oxygen absorber further. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 120.152.170.16 (talk) 12:07, 11 April 2010 (UTC) Dr. Simon Cichello (www.oxygenabsorber.wholesalegroup.com.au) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 120.152.170.16 (talk) 12:08, 11 April 2010 (UTC) Pwallen1962 (talk) 07:44, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

chemicals[edit]

this article dose not indicate the name of the chemicals that is being used in the oxygen absorber, so someone please put that up.

Thanks.

Article suggests iron oxide is the active ingredient. Don't think so.[edit]

I think it's more likely that the packets start out as reduced (elemental) iron, plus a little water or, more likely some nontoxic hygroscopic material. Ngvrnd (talk) 21:39, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Silicon[edit]

does the oxygen absorber in small packets like in moon cakes have silicon gel? what are the symptoms to be observed after accidentally consuming a small packet of oxygen absorber? why does the packets have nice looking packaging, is it not in the category of poison wherein it must have the skull/hazardous symbol? why is it that some foods tastes like oxygen absorbers? why does some food smells like oxygen absorbers? are there side effects with buying products that uses oxygen absorbers? how does oxygen absorbers degenerate or are returned to earth? what is the lifetime of an oxygen absorber? can an oxygen absorber actually kill? are there situations that an oxygen absorber accidentally killed somebody?


p.s. please answer the questions because they are bothering me..thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 112.210.253.102 (talk) 05:45, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

There is a lot of great information in Yam, K. L. (ed.). Encyclopedia of Packaging Technology. ISBN 9780470087046.  but unfortunately I don't have the time to pull it out. Testem (talk) 07:55, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
