# How to eliminate electrostatic charges from titanium dioxide powder

I have synthesized $\ce{TiO2}$ nanoparticles via sol-gel method and I need to calcine it at elevated temperatures for the crystal phases formation. The powder is very highly charged and not only difficult to work with but I also lose significant amounts as it gets repelled by quartz glass and other tools and fly all over the places.

Is there a way that I can alleviate the repulsive forces between the powder and the tools that I use?
