Scientists Create Dry Water, and on the Seventh Day They Rested

A group of scientists at the University of Liverpool claim that they have created “dry” water, which is composed of actual water droplets surrounded by a coating of silica, thus its powdered form. The scientists are quick to state, however, that this dry water is aimed for public consumption, but for absorbing greenhouse gases. Their research has shown that dry water is three times better when it comes to absorbing carbon dioxide compared to normal wet water.

Another possible use of this dry water is as catalyst for “speeding up reactions between hydrogen and maleic acid” to create succinic acid, an important component in making drugs, food stuff, and consumer products. They are considered as “dry emulsions” for blending unblendable liquids.
