A Guide to Flow Chemistry Equipment

Posted on: November 4, 2022

Flow chemistry swaps flasks for fluidics: replacing the tools of conventional “batch” processing with flow chemistry equipment that handles continuous streams of reactants and products. Carrying out a lab-scale synthesis continuously (or “in flow”) can offer numerous advantages. Increased availability … Continue reading

Three Methods of Solvent Evaporation

Posted on: August 9, 2022

Solvent evaporation occurs routinely in nature when water gains energy, often as heat, and transitions from a liquid state into a gaseous one. Thermal molecular agitation is what underlies this change, hence you apply heat to water and molecules with … Continue reading
