Abstract In order to improve adsorptive properties and provide a viable alternative to humidity control techniques, the desiccants can be modified with chemical aggregates such as calcium chloride (CaCl 2 ), the latter often used as dehydrating due to its hygroscopicity and low cost. Its use as a drying agent has disadvantages because of its particles form a liquid film. However, the CaCl 2 may be mixed with other materials for preparing desiccant products. In this work we studied, at 298 K and… CONTINUE READING
