What Is Molecular Sieve?


May 15, 2017 ,

What is Molecular Sieve? Molecular sieves are synthetic zeolite materials engineered with pores of precise and uniform structure and size. This allows them to preferentially adsorb gases and liquids based on molecular size and polarity. Zeolites are naturally existing, highly porous crystalline solids, belonging to the class of chemicals known as aluminosilicates. There are four […]

What is Silica Gel?


May 12, 2017 ,

What is Silica Gel? Silica gel is a solid form of silicon dioxide, or SiO2, and it is actually more granular and hard than it is a gel. Silica gel is specifically synthesized to be highly porous, which is what gives it its adsorbing capabilities. Additionally, SiO2 is a polar compound, which allows it to […]

Is Silica Gel Polar?


May 12, 2017 ,

Is silica gel polar? What significance does this hold for its adsorption capabilities? Silica gel is a polar adsorbent. This allows it to preferentially adsorb other polar materials. When it comes to polarity, materials interact more with like materials. This principle is particularly important to many laboratories, which use silica gel as the stationary phase […]
