Calcium chloride is used as a de-icing and dust control of roads, drilling muds, dust proofing, freeze proofing and thawing coal, coke, stone, sand, and ore, concrete conditioning, paper and pulp industry, drying and desiccating agent, and tire weighting. Calcium plays important roles in many biological processes, including signal transduction, muscle contraction, maintenance of cell membranes and cell wall stability. Calcium chloride is a soluble compound that can serve as a source of calcium ions in a solution. Can be useful for displacing ions from solution, for example, phosphate may be displaced from solution by calcium. Calcium chloride solution has many applications in cell and molecular biology experiments.
