zeolite


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

ze·o·lite

(zē'ō-līt),
A naturally occurring hydrated sodium aluminum silicate, Na2O·Al2O3·(SiO2)x·(H2O)x, used for softening of hard water by exchanging its Na+ for the Ca2+ of the water; thus zeolite is an ion exchanger. Some synthetic ion exchangers are termed synthetic zeolites, although no chemical relationship exists.

(zē′ŏ-līt″) [Gr. zein, to boil + -lite]
