About stabilizers: what chemicals are commonly used as stabilizers for poppers, and how do they work, and do they actually work well? Thanks.

You need something to stabilize them. You need something that sucks up water and acid, both of which kill the nitrite. BUT if the poppers are too impure, they probably won't help.

Molecular seives will slow down degradation due to absorption of water from exposure but there's no point in adding any unless you add them to a brand new bottle of good stuff IMO. It's pretty cheap on ebay, so not much harm in trying.

Dehydrated magnesium sulfate, silica granules or magnesia could potentially work. The first two soak up water, the third is also a pH buffer for free acidity. None are soluble in alcohols or esters to my knowledge.
