Somewhere I heard that people used some kind of chemical which keeps mineral water chilled for long time.

Does anybody knows about such chemical?
@Ramani Aswath • 29 Apr, 2013 This does not gel thermodynamically. The time for which some thing remains chill depends on its thermal mass and the heat influx. One cannot use too much quantity of chemicals in some thing meant for drinking.
Since we cannot control heat influx with a chemical and the thermal mass does not change much, it is not possible to keep water chill longer with a chemical in my opinion.

Sir, I have seen those guys who supplies mineral water locally they are used to drop just one drop of such chemical and that chemical makes water chilled.

Have a look at these links :-

@siddhbhushan swami • 26 Feb, 2017 • 2 likes Dear Harshadji, did you find the name of that chemical?

I have this question too. But I want to use that chemical for water cooler
@Ramani Aswath • 26 Feb, 2017 Not possible theoretically.
@MURTUZA ZAVERI • 02 Aug, 2017 are u talking about cryogenics ? freon especially
@rakesh shah • 24 Sep, 2018

May I have that chemical name ?

It just will NOT work.

I have also heard same thing before two days that a drop of chemical cools water instantly in RO water jug

If it were true you can use it to prevent premature setting of concrete and give you more working time.

Unfortunately the laws of thermodynamics still apply.

@Hardik Patel • 27 Apr, 2019

Can i get that chemical's name?

Why don’t CEans do some very basic thermal calculations? They will then know that this is theoretically impossible.
