    Description of the substance

    Calcium chloride, CaCl2, is a salt of calcium and chlorine. It behaves as a typical ionic halide, and is solid at room temperature. Common applications include brine for refrigeration plants, ice and dust control on roads, and desiccation. Because of its hygroscopic nature, anhydrous calcium chloride must be kept in tightly-sealed air-tight containers.

    Calcium chloride can serve as a source of calcium ions in a solution as, unlike many other calcium compounds, calcium chloride is soluble.
    Calcium chloride has a very high enthalpy change of solution.
    The anhydrous salt is deliquescent; it can accumulate enough water in its crystal lattice to form a solution.
