Deliquescent

| | Comments (0)

Was feeling quite flat tonight and random paging wiki and found this wonderful word:

Deliquescent
Deliquescent materials have such a strong affinity for moisture that they form a liquid solution if left in normal air for a time. Deliquescent salts include calcium chloride and zinc chloride. They are often used as desiccants.

Isn't that just a beautiful word?

Fortunately I'll have Harry to keep my company for the rest of the weekend.
