Deionized Water (We call it "DI water" in the chemistry labs) is just what it sounds like: Water that has the ions removed. Tap water is usually full of ions from the soil (Na+, Ca2+), from the pipes (Fe2+, Cu2+), and other sources. Water is usually deionized by using an ion exchange process.

Deionized water is a type of purified water with mineral ions (salts) removed. These mineral ions include sodium, calcium, iron, copper, chloride, and bromide. Deionized water is created by taking conventional water and exposing it to electrically charged resins that attract and bind to the salts, removing them from the water. Because most of the impurities in water are mineral salts, deionized water is mostly pure, but it does still contain numerous bacteria and viruses, which have no charge and therefore are not attracted to the electrified resins.

In recent years, many deionization systems have been marketed for home use, often with claims that deionized water is an antioxidant that can slow aging and prevent disease. This is quack medicine, and contradicts basic aspects of physiology and chemistry. Some scientists who have studied the health effects of deionized water have even called it "snake oil on tap." There are many reasons why deionized water should not be expected to giv ...more
