The physical properties of diatomite have led to its use in many commercial applications. Especially in the chemical industry, diatomite acts as a raw material for procuring liquid glass. During this process, the physical property of diatomite that includes high dispersity and porosity of diatomaceous particles, further promote interaction with sodium hydroxide. Diatomite is a naturally active mineral additive found in Portland cement. However, for conventional concrete, lightweight aggregates that include diatomite, pumice etc. are preferred.
Cosmetics application of diatomite includes its use in cosmetic powder such as talc to absorb the oils. Pharmaceutical application of diatomite includes its use as an absorbent with adsorbent properties which is used to regulate the release of cationic drugs
Diatomites are chosen for purifying drinking and industrial waters and can be used successfully in the atomic industry for removing radioactive substance from liquid. Diatomite is are becoming more popular as a catalyst and are characterized by high surface area of pores and could retention capacity. Diatomite acts as a natural insecticide, as it absorbs their protective wax coating and their shells are damaged by glassy diatoms. However, this reaction causes the insects to die due to dehydration, thus protecting the crop from further damage.
