What are the storage conditions for the functionalized silica?
It will vary depending on the storage conditions and approximated shelf life of grafted functional groups. These informations are written on the PDS (Product Data Sheet) sent with every product.
In general, products with reactive hygroscopic functional groups should be stored under inert atmosphere at 4°C.
Products stored at 4°C should be allowed to warm to room temperature before opening to minimize condensation.
Products with stable functional groups should be stored in closed containers to avoid moisture.
