Silica Gel (also known as Silicon dioxide) is a form of silicon dioxide, made synthetically from sodium silicate. Due to its selective surface properties, Silica Gel has is widely used in adsorption of gases, water vapor and in chromatography. It is also used as catalyst in reactions forming or consuming water and as a catalyst support. Silica Gel is applied as functional additives in coatings, plastics food and pharmaceuticals.
