Glassware Silanization - Improves Recoveries and Results
We offer our deactivation treatment for all of your glass storage containers. High concentrations of silanol groups (Si-O-H) on untreated glass surfaces can catalyze the decomposition of unstable compounds or adsorb polar compounds through hydrogen bonding. This can reduce recoveries and result in the formation of unwanted decomposition by-products.

Our glassware silanization service creates a more inert glass surface which eliminates many of these issues. In fact, we have approved this same silanization process for containers used with some of our most demanding biological products, and to treat containers for all of our quantitative standards.

Simply send us your glassware, or request silanol deactivation when you purchase your Supelco glassware, to receive a quote for this service. If you wish, we can provide a certificate of treatment.
