Calcium Chloride - aka Damp Rid


How does Calcium Chloride absorb, or is it adsorb, water from the air?


Also, is there a good video of it drying out aqueous HCL?



How much water can it hold?



Does it really dry out closets? Do you have to keep your windows shut for it to work? lol

Yes, they can all be answered.
2 by looking in a general chemistry textbook.
One by searching on Youtube
One by consulting with people who have encountered and battled against the heartbreak of damp closets.

I'm going to watch The Cabin Boy, while you do those things.
best of luck.

New years' eve I had a shot of Fluorine-18 and spent the evening radiating antimatter.

CaCl2 is deliquescent and not just hygroscopic. I don't think adsorb is the word that best describes this.

Last batch I did was a long time ago. I spread out a kilo or so in disposable aluminium trays and popped it on the barbecue for a few hours. I then crushed it up and popped it into some jam jars with some teflon tape around the thread for a better air-tight seal. Undoubtedly I picked up some impurities along the way and I would not vouch for the purity of my original pool grade calcium chloride. But it seems to work just fine for sucking the water out of solvents.

But I agree, this should have been a quick search, Y2.
