How should functionalized silica be handled?

Handling functionalized silica is easy. Unlike polymer, it does not carry any static charge, which makes it easier to weigh and dispense. They can be wet or dry packed.

For all functionalized silica gels with a moisture and/or air sensitive functionality, they should be handled under an inert atmosphere in order to preserve their reactivity.
