CondenSyn Evaluation: Dr Alistair Henderson, NewChem Technologies

Dr Alistair Henderson of NewChem Technologies offers an evaluation of the CondenSyn waterless air condenser: “…The ease of which the lightweight condensers are attached to the reaction set-up make them attractive, it is just like ‘plug and play’!…” Continue reading

Serious testing of the CondenSyn

Dr Nicholas White team testing of CondenSyn

“….. It was decided to test the CondenSyn under relatively tough conditions, as close as possible to those used in a typical laboratory synthesis. A 100 mL round bottomed flask containing 50 mL of a given solvent was heated to a temperature 10% higher than the stated boiling point of the solvent for 24 hours under bubbling nitrogen gas. ….” Continue reading

The magic of CondenSyn: Lauren Turner, University of Hull

Asynt CondenSyn waterless air condenser for chemistry laboratory

Lauren Turner of the University of Hull takes an objective look at CondenSyn: “The CondenSyn is the perfect tool for practical chemistry; it allows you to put on multiple reactions using a water-less condenser, which means you use less water and it takes up less space as there is no tubing required….” Continue reading

CondenSyn Evaluation: Ben Cheesman, Aqdot

CondenSyn evaluation: “We have chosen to use CondenSyn condensers for our organic and polymer synthesis reactions as a) they remove the risk of flooding, especially when with leaving reactions unattended overnight, b) they stop water wastage, and c) the knock-on financial benefit of reduced water consumption and sewage charges. The CondenSyn is cheaper relative to its competition, and the inside can be cleaned reducing the risk of cross-contamination. I would recommend them to fellow chemists.”
