The material is stable at room temperature as long as it is protected from moisture. We do recommend 2-8 °C for its storage.
DEPC breaks down to ethanol and carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide builds up pressure inside the bottle; when opened, it will degas and/or bubble out of the bottle.
DEPC reacts with amines, thiols, and alcohols. Any buffer that contains an amine, e.g.., Trizma, should not be used. View this information on the product information sheet (under Documents, above.
Glassware is preferable since some plastics, e.g.., polycarbonate, are known to react with DEPC.
DEPC is not very soluble in water. Stirring and/or shaking is necessary to suspend DEPC in water.
Add DEPC directly to the water to yield a 0.1 % solution. Shake vigorously and allow to set overnight at room temperature with the lid loose or incubated for 2 hours at 37 °C. The solution is then autoclaved 15 minutes for each liter.
