Silylation of PP - (Jul/12/2012 )


I am trying to perform an experiment where it is crucial for me to loose as little of my affinity resin as possible; and my PI have suggested Silylation of polypropylene Eppendorf tubes.

However I have been wondering if any of you know how to do it, or if you could direct me to a source where I could find this information out.

Thank you very much,



you can purchase the tubes already siliconized (eg from thermo-fisher)

or do it yourself with reagents (eg from thermo-fisher)

there are other sources for both, if you prefer. just google.


That's great! Thank you very much for that
