Asynt reports on how the School of Chemistry at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia has invested in a range of its DrySyn MULTI heating block systems to support its ground breaking synthetic research in photovoltaics, water splitting and nanoimaging.

asyntprIn order to improve safety in his laboratories, Leone Spiccia, Professor of Chemistry at Monash University sought laboratory apparatus to replace oil bath systems traditionally used for all general syntheses. He comments¬† ‚ÄúAfter a lengthy evaluation process we decided to switch to DrySyn heating block systems as they are inherently safer to use than heated oil baths, avoiding the risk of oil spillage that can lead to burns when hot or may cause someone to slip over‚ÄĚ. Professor Spiccia added ‚ÄúWe are using DrySyn products inside our nanoimaging team...

  Compact Solution for Parallel Blending / Formulation Experiments

Asynt has developed a new adaption of its Vortex overhead stirrer, called the Vortex Blend, specifically to cater for the requirement of scientists who need to test new formulations and blends in parallel.

asyntpr29-hiresimageMany scientists in the oil, polymer, cosmetics and hygiene industries have established methods for blending and formulation development based upon mixing materials in standard laboratory beakers. These protocols often require heating and powerful mixing to ensure blend / formulation homogeneity. To accelerate formulation development it is advantageous to perform multiple blending experiments in parallel. Traditionally conducting multiple heating and overhead stirring experiments in parallel has taken up a lot of valuable fume hood space...

  Synthesis & Evaporation In Pear Shaped Flasks

Asynt has developed a version of DrySyn heating block purpose designed to allow scientists to perform safe, productive heating and stirring experiments with pear shaped flasks commonly used with rotary evaporators.

Pear shaped flasks

Pear shaped flasks are popular with organic chemists as concentrated samples can be removed much more easily than from a round bottom flask. Pear-shaped flasks are used for evaporating solutions to dryness post synthesis using a rotary evaporator, the 'rounded V' shape of the flasks enables solid materials to be scraped out more efficiently than from a round bottomed flask. Martyn Fordham, Managing Director of Asynt commented “By designing a version of the DrySyn to accept these flasks - chemists can now eliminate the need for sample transfers between reaction flask and an evaporator (pear-shaped) flask, allowing the same flask to be used for both Synthesis and Evaporation...
