Lightbulb How to convert a monohydrate to an anhydrous salt

Good time of day to you

I am in need of anhydrous Cadmium Chloride CdCl2 , for an experiment, but the vendors are offering a monohydrate form (at a good price), so how would one go about converting the salt to its anhydrous form?


Please help.

heat it up in an oven for a long time, dry it out

Will microwaving it also work?

No, you need to reach temperatures of + 300C
