VAPOURTEC introduces PHOTO-Reactor

Continuous Photochemical Reactions

Photochemistry, the use of light to effect chemical reactions, has a number of important applications
Photo Reactor
both in nature, such as photosynthesis and vitamin D formation, and in industry. However for the modern synthetic chemist photochemistry at lab scale has fallen out of favour. There are a number of reasons for this including; availability and complexity of equipment, safety, control of reaction conditions and difficulty in scale up.

Vapourtec has now made available for both the E-Series and R-Series systems an advanced photo chemical reactor intended for continuous flow operation. By eliminating the problems associated with traditional batch photochemistry Vapourtec’s new reactor, the UV-150 enables chemists to take full advantage of the powerful reactions and synthetic routes offered by photo chemical reactions.
