Desiccators, It is important to dry reactants prior to their use in chemical reactions. In order to absorb any water vapour that does enter the chamber, Desiccators are usually sealed and air-tight to prevent water vapour from entering and contain a desiccant (drying material).

Water vapour, A desiccant (drying material), is usually added to the desiccator whenever the desiccator is opened. Generally, Calcium chloride (a salt) and silica gel(a non-reactive solid) are two typical desiccants (drying material) that are used routinely.

PolyLab Brand Desiccators are highly recommended for the purpose of their use. They are Autoclavable and available in Polypropylene/polycarbonate material.

Sterilization

Autoclaving (121°C, 15 psi for 20 minutes) Clean and rinse item with distilled water before autoclaving. Certain chemicals which have no appreciable effect on resins at room temperature may cause deterioration at autoclaving temperatures.

    Plain Desiccators, Polypropylene

    Plain Desiccators are physically the same as Vacuum desiccators. The only difference is the absence of stopcock. Grease should be applied on the flanges to make it airtight. Both Vacuum and Plain Desiccators are provided with a thick perforated Polypropylene disc with a big hole in the centre for easy lifting. The tiny holes in the disc provide air troughs and support to the dishes. However, porcelain discs are advisable in case of incandescent crucibles.
