Gypsum is a very soft mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate, with the chemical formula CaSO4·2H2O. Chemical structure Heating gypsum above approximately 150°C (302°F) partially dehydrates the mineral by driving off exactly 75% of the water contained in its chemical structure. CaSO4·2H2O + heat → CaSO4·½H2O + 1½H2O (steam) The partially dehydrated mineral is called calcium sulfate hemihydrate or calcined gypsum (commonly known as plaster of...
