Silica Gel, made synthetically from sodium silicate, is granular, vitreous, highly porous form of silica. Silica is a naturally occurring mineral that is purified and processed into either granular or beaded form. It has a strong affinity for water molecules. Silica gel is commonly used as a desiccant where it is packed in vapor-permeable plastic in order to control local humidity in order to avoid spoilage or degradation of some goods. Due to their high absorption of moisture and...
