Multi-scale Workstation Improves Synthesis Efficiency

Jun 20 2007

Radleys have published a new synthesis Application Bulletin that describes the concept of a multi-scale synthesis workstation that chemists may use with minimal set-up, simply adding or removing specific modules to suit their application.

With demands on chemists ever increasing, time spent assembling and setting up equipment prior to use is time lost for synthesis. The multi-scale synthesis workstation comprises a closed-loop water chiller, a stirring hotplate, a choice of plug-in synthesis modules plus unique water and gas distribution manifolds.

At the heart of the multi-scale synthesis workstation are two water manifolds designed to allow cooling water from a single source to be evenly distributed to multiple condensers and then the flow recombined to one return/drain tube. Each water manifold contains a series of 5 shut-off valves that automatically open when a connector is plugged in, and close and seal when the connector is removed. Consequently synthesis/reaction modules can be simply plugged in or removed from the workstation rapidly and without water spills.

Similar to the water distribution manifold the gas/vacuum distribution manifold allows gas or a vacuum from a single source to be evenly distributed to up to 5 reactions making it ideally suited for both vacuum and gas purging.

Instead of using traditional mains water supply the multi-scale synthesis workstation uses a chiller to provide cooling water. Able to service up to 5 standard condensers simultaneously, the Minichiller radically reduces water consumption, improves cooling efficiency, ensures constant cooling, unaffected by variations in water pressure and reduces the risk of flooding should tubing become dislodged.

As market leader in affordable parallel synthesis equipment Radleys offer a wide variety of synthesis and reaction modules, from 0.5ml to 30 litres to suit all popular chemistry applications.
