molecular sieve

(Elements & Compounds) chem a material that can absorb large amounts of certain compounds while not absorbing others and is thus suitable for use in separating mixtures

molec′ular sieve′

a compound with molecule-size pores, as some sodium aluminum silicates, that chemically locks molecules in them: used in purification and separation processes.
