Abstract: The impurities likely to be present in carbon dioxide are listed; water is considered to be the most important in view of its adverse effect on the compatibility of many reactor materials with the gas. The literature on various desiccants is reviewed and a suggested experimental programme on drying of the carbon dioxide is outlined. Other major impurities are oxygen and nitrogen. Some chemical means for continually removing the oxygen appear possible. It is likely that the nitrogen content can only be lowered on charging the reactor; no continual method seems feasible at this stage. Minor impurities such as the oxides of nitrogen and sulphur are mentioned and the continual removal of dust in the coolant circuit is considered.
