Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide (CO2), comprising two oxygen atoms bonded to a single carbon atom. It is colourless, odourless, non-flammable, and slightly acidic. At temperatures above -56.4 °C (-69.5°F) and pressures below 5.2 bar, CO2 changes from a solid to a gas with no intervening liquid form, through a process called sublimation. The low temperature and direct sublimation to a gas makes dry ice an effective coolant, since it is colder than water ice and leaves no residue as it changes state.
