In situ speciation of dissolved inorganic antimony in surface waters and sediment porewaters: development of a SiliaMetS Thiol-based diffusive gradients in thin films technique for SbIII

Antimony speciation in water using SiliaMetS Thiol scavenger

SiliaMetS Thiol allows for the selective adsorption of SbIII over SbV, making the quantification of each speciation possible.

The toxicity and mobility of Antimony are both affected by its speciation, making the quantification of the trivalent (SbIII) or the pentavalent (SbV) oxidation state in aquatic systems a key issue to understand the behaviour of this contaminant in aquatic systems.

SiliaMetS Metal Scavengers


SiliaMetS Metal Scavengers are functionalized silica gels designed to react and bind excess metal complexes.

Silica-based metal scavengers have been proven to be the purification method of choice over all other methods and several companies from various industries use them.
With the silica matrix advantages over polymers (no swelling, more general solvent compatibility, higher mechanical and thermal stabilities, applications easily scalables and products available in different formats (SPE, flash cartridges and bulk), etc.) combined to SiliCycle’ expertise in grafting technology, SiliaMetS are the solution for metal removal without contamination of drug candidates
SiliaMetS are highly selective and offer a cost-effective alternative for metal scavenging.

SiliaMetS Thiol

SiliCycle Metal Scavenger - SiliaMetS Thiol

SiliaMetS Thiol (Si-Thiol) is a robust metal scavenger for a variety of metals including Pd, Pt, Cu, Ag and Pb under a wide range of conditions. It has been used in pharmaceutical processes up to the pilot plant scale. It is our most versatile metal scavenger and is the preferred metal scavenger for Pd(II), Cu, Ag, and Hg.
