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 Sustainability Report: The University of Liverpool tested the yields and reaction times for various experiments across the chemistry department. They used this to determine the performance of the CondenSyn,
Asynt reports on how chemistry labs, seeking to minimise water wastage, are electing to replace Liebig-style water condensers with their CondenSyn waterless air condenser, for both reflux and distillation reactions.
World Water Day 2019: Leaving no one behind
Cape Town is in the shocking situation of being the first major city in the modern era to face the threat of running out of drinking water. I see regular posts on social media sites from friends in that area and this is very real.
We hear from Environmental Ambassador, Teresina Ambrosio – PhD Student at the University of Nottingham, GSK Carbon Neutral Laboratory for Sustainable Chemistry:
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.
Asynt reports on an independent evaluation, from a leading UK university, detailing the performance of the CondenSyn MINI air condenser for safe use in their research and teaching laboratories.
It’s so easy to use three different sized CondenSyn in parallel with only one Asynt hotplate kit! Dr Arran Solomonsz demonstrates the simple set up and change over.
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’!…”
