Vacuum Vortex Evaporation

Condensing and evaporating samples is a very necessary part of many chemical testing protocols. Samples need to be recovered after screening from their subsequent solvents. Many methods have been created to expedite this process and Biochromato has created an...

Rotary Evaporator (Rotovap) Issues and the Smart Solution

Evaporation is an integral part of chemistry research and the de facto instrument is the Rotary Evaporator, also referred to as Rotovap. As much as they are commonly used for concentrating solvents, they also have a reputation for issues that include bumping and...

How to Remove DMSO and DMF

Though evaporating DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide) and DMF (Dimethylformamide) in organic synthesis and analytical chemistry may be dreaded and have even become a lost cause for others, this article outlines a way to remove these difficult solvents quickly and easily with the invention of new evaporation technology.

NMR Solvent Selection

  When selecting a solvent for running Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) analysis, typically a deuterated solvent is used in order to minimize background signals and provide a lock signal to compensate for drifts in the magnetic field1.  ...

Types of Solvent Evaporators – An Overview

  Removal of solvents is a common need in any organic chemistry lab and often times the major “bottleneck” in a synthetic workup, thereby slowing down production. Additionally, evaporation of solvent is required for recovery of samples analyzed by NMR...

How can I remove DMSO from my sample?

We introduce a simple way to remove Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO). DMSO is used in organic synthesis as a reaction solvent as well as analytical chemistry for NMR analysis (DMSO-D6) due to its ability to dissolve many compounds that are difficult to dissolve otherwise....
