An oxygen absorber is a specially formulated and packaged chemical that removes all or a significant percentage of oxygen in an appropriately sized and sealed space.

Oxygen absorbers perform their action through a chemical reaction. They contain iron powder which reacts with the oxygen in the air causing the iron powder to rust. When all the iron powder has oxidized, the oxygen absorbers are "loaded" and the absorbing action stops. Remove the oxygen from an active absorber and the chemical reaction stops. Put them back in the air and the reaction starts again until the iron is gone. The active agent in oxygen absorber packs is typically a iron oxide powder packaged in a material which retains the powder but allows air and moisture to penetrate. Oxygen absorbers are available in a range of sizes suitable for differing storage container capacities.

An oxygen absorber includes an iron powder, and a first layer coated on a surface of the iron powder and formed of iron chloride through a chemical reaction.
