High yield photochemical flow synthesis

Comprising a high intensity Borealis LED lamp unit and a Cold Coil standalone reactor module, the device brings flow photochemistry within the reach of almost any laboratory

The Borealis Flow Photoreactor from Uniqsis sets a new benchmark for high yield photochemical flow synthesis. Comprising a high intensity Borealis LED lamp unit and a Cold Coil standalone reactor module, the device brings flow photochemistry within the reach of almost any laboratory.

Fitted with a safety interlock to prevent accidental exposure to high intensity light, the LED lamps (available in a range of fixed wavelengths), are powered by a programmable power supply that automatically detects the wavelength of the LED module and adjusts the output characteristics accordingly. A temperature sensor and safety cut-out are fitted to protect the LEDs from overheating, while an inert gas purge input is provided for low temperature use.

To set up the device, a coil reactor is inserted inside a Cold Coil reactor module and clamped in place using the external adjuster. The Borealis LED lamp unit is then inserted into the coil reactor and connected to the power supply.

The coil reactor temperature is controlled by connecting the Cold Coil to a either a cold-water supply (for reactions close to room temperature), or preferably to a high precision thermoregulation system such as the Huber Piccolo or Minstat.
