Smart Evaporator Evaluation: Dr Graham W. Wynne, University of Oxford
- “We have been using two Smart Evaporators in the Russell group labs here at the Chemistry Research Laboratory in Oxford now for several months. They have found broad utility on a daily basis within the medicinal chemistry team, with typical usage being for removing solvents from target compounds prior to submitting them to our colleagues in biology for screening.
- This was critical to us, as it highlights the units’ capability in removing trace solvent.
- Furthermore, they are commonly employed in isolating synthetic intermediates, and recovering NMR samples from solution, including those containing DMSO.
- The Smart Evaporators not only help with our workflow, but importantly are quick and easy to use, require little or no maintenance, and occupy only a small footprint within a fumehood.”
