Desiccants are drying agents that extract water from materials. They are either soluble or insoluble substances that adsorb water due to their chemical properties. Examples include silica gel, bauxite, calcium sulfate, and montmorillonite clay. Soluble agents include calcium chloride and glycerol. Molecular sieves, alumina, and activated charcoal also make exceptional desiccants.
