At what temperature should the scavenger be used?

> back to the scavengers FAQ page

In initial screening, we suggest the scavenging experiments be run at room temperature.

Usually, scavenging is completed after one hour or so. However, when shorter scavenging times are required, higher scavenging rates can be achieved by increasing the temperature.

SiliaMetS and SiliaBond can be safely used at elevated temperature without degradation and can be added either at room temperature or directly to a warm solution.
