CondenSyn Evaluation: Lauren Turner, University of Hull

Posted on: April 13, 2016

I think of the CondenSyn like a magic wand: you place it on top of your reaction that you want to reflux, use it with the DrySyn heating blocks and away you go. You have water free, oil free and hassle free reactions that still give brilliant results at the tap of your wand! Continue reading

DrySyn Evaluation: Oliver Cartright, University of East Anglia

DrySyn Evaluation:

“The DrySyn heating blocks have meant that the need for the oil baths has been removed. This has reduced issues arising regarding the disposal of the oil and also the possibility of spillages associated with their use. The DrySyn multi position heating blocks have also been beneficial when carrying out reactions on smaller scales with an aim of optimising certain conditions.”

IKA RV 10 Digital Flex Rotary Evaporator Evaluation:

“The IKA Rotary Evaporator RV 10 Digital Flex has been used extensively by our lab members for the removal of both high and low boiling point solvents. The use of the automated lift function of the machine allows for smooth movement of flasks into the water bath without jamming as is sometimes found with other rotary evaporators. The inbuilt safety features of the equipment also instil confidence in the user while evaporating a variety of solvents.”

CondenSyn Evaluation:

“The use of The CondenSyn air condensers around the lab have been very helpful! Reducing the need for water condensers for reactions under reflux has improved the efficiency of completing the reactions allowing more to be done at once and allowing experiments to be completed away from a water source. The chances of flooding and water leakage has also been eliminated which is particularly important for overnight reactions etc.”

CondenSyn Evaluation: Ben Cheesman, Aqdot

Posted on: November 3, 2015

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.”
