A drying agent is a chemical used to remove water from an organic compound that is in solution. Commonly used drying agents in organic laboratories are calcium chloride (CaCl2), sodium sulfate (Na2SO4) calcium sulfate (CaSO4, also known as Drierite) and magnesium sulfate (MgSO4), all in their anhydrous form.
