The removal of dissolved oxygen (O2) from solution is a prerequisite for many reactions, frequently requiring specialized equipment/reagents or expertise. Herein, we introduce a range of reusable, shelf-stable enzyme-functionalized glassware, which biocatalytically removes O2 from contained aqueous solutions. The effectiveness of the activated glassware is demonstrated by facilitating several O2-intolerant RAFT polymerizations.
