1] The most commonly used desiccant is silica gel (SiO2 9 H20), an amorphous form of silica manufactured from sodium silicate and sulfuric acid. [2] Zeolites or "molecular sieves" are rigid, hydrated crystalline aluminosilicate minerals that contain alkali and alkaline earth metals. Zeolites possess a three-dimensional crystal lattice structure that forms surface pores of uniform diameter and contain numerous regular internal cavities and channels. Water molecules are readily incorporated within the pores and cavities.
