Adapter Enables Parallel Chemical Reactions at Over 400°C
18 May 2019
Asynt launches the DrySyn Multi-M high temperature adapter, enabling scientists to undertake parallel reactions requiring solution temperatures of more than 400°C.
Asynt customers worldwide have reported great success in using single position DrySyn heating block systems at high temperatures. But a novel pin locating adapter plate was required in order to carry out very high-temperature reactions in parallel. With high-temperature hotplate stirrers generally much larger than those considered ‘standard’, the new adapter plate ensures that the DrySyn Multi-M loaded with 3 x 250ml round-bottomed flasks can be accurately and securely positioned.
Manufactured from solid aluminium, the DrySyn Multi-M with high-temperature adapter was originally designed for a customer who is now successfully undertaking novel nanoparticle synthesis reactions in parallel that require solution temperatures of up to and over 400°C.
Most standard lab hotplate stirrers have a maximum ‘plate’ temperature of around 300°C. Therefore a higher temperature unit is needed if a solution temperature above around 280°C level is required. Asynt recommends the use of a high-temperature hotplate stirrer such as the IKA HS7, which is capable of 500°C and works perfectly with the DrySyn Multi-M.
