Organic Synthesis in Microscale Without All the Expensive Glassware
- Perform organic synthesis, refluxing, and distillation in microscale
- Set is also reusable and contains enough hardware for one lab setup
- Activity kits that can be used with the apparatus set are available separately
The Combo-Still™ offers an opportunity to demonstrate or teach organic chemistry in a new and inexpensive way. The inner glass vial contains the reactants and the outer glass vial is filled with silicone oil and is used as a heating bath. Very little heat is needed, and only 2-4 mL of reactant is necessary. The apparatus includes an organic-resistant microplate, experiment stand, thermometer, two glass-bead packed columns (one for reflux, the other for distillation) and a vial of boiling chips. An instruction manual is also included. Fractional Distillation Collector consists of a holder that fits into the Organic Resistant Microplate and six receptacles to collect distillate fractions. Just move the receptacles one-by-one underneath the condenser and collect fractions as necessary.
