Dr Graeme McAllister, Experimental Officer at the University of York offers an evaluation of the Asynt CondenSyn waterless air condenser after trials with a THF drying still (b.p. 66 °C), equipped with a 1 L main flask and ~250 mL collection head.
CondenSyn Evaluation: I just wanted to write to let you know that my experience using the CondenSyn was wonderful! I refluxed acetonitrile at 85 °C over the weekend and came
The reflux condenser worked really well with all of the solvents I used (DMF, Ethanol, DCM, water, MeCN and acetone) with no ‘bumping’ up the condenser that I have seen with water based ones.
DrySyn & CondenSyn Evaluation: Alwin Hartman, Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland
We recently faced severe water damage due to a water hose that had snapped. Using waterless condensers would definitely have prevented this incident.
We are proud to share a recent case study on the Asynt CondenSyn waterless air condensers from King’s College London which forms part of their “Sustainability Champions” work.
World Water Day is an annual event celebrated on 22nd March, worldwide. The issues of clean water, sanitation and hygiene facilities in developing countries aren’t directly associated with unnecessary water loss in a laboratory in London for example, but we only have so much fresh water to go around. This is something we feel that everyone is responsible for and we can all make a difference.
Overall verdict: Does exactly the same job as a traditional condenser with a lot less work, more safely & is basically idiot proof
CondenSyn Evaluation: Queen’s University Belfast review the Asynt CondenSyn Waterless Air Condenser.
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’!…”
Thomas Britten, Department of Chemistry, Lancaster University shares a comprehensive evaluation of the Asynt CondenSyn waterless air condenser.
