Is salt removed by lyophilization?

The 2'-ACE deprotection reaction generates volatile species (ethylene glycol and formic acid) which are both removed by lyophilization. Salt is removed by ethanol precipitation, PAGE, column purification or HPLC. Please view the optimized protocols in our online Support Center for desalting by ethanol precipitation or column desalting.
