LED Benchtop Batch Photoreactor

Designed to run small scale batch photochemical reactions in parallel, SOLSTICETM is a 12-position reactor tube holder that fits on a standard (135mm) magnetic stirrer. It is ideal for both catalyst screening/optimisation of reaction conditions and production of small compound arrays.

Tube reactors are fitted with septa and can be inerted and either pre-loaded with reagent solutions or loaded/degassed in situ.
The tube reactors (12 x 8ml max.) are subject to efficient magnetic stirring and the tube holder can be effectively temperature controled by connecting Solstice to an external recirculator or tap. An internal temperature probe measures reaction temperatures directly.

Optional inserts are available to create thin films under vortex stirring conditions to maximise light absorption. Recommended reaction volumes are 0.5 - 5ml per tube.

Solstice uses the high power Uniqsis BOREALISTM LED light source. Standard options are either 450nm or 365nm (other wavelengths are available on request). Borealis is high-quality 180W variable intensity LED light source that has a programmable power supply able to readout both LED and reactor temperatures.

Whilst limited scale-up can be achieved by scaling out across a number of tubes, the Borealis lamp module can be combined with a Uniqsis Cold Coil and internal coil reactor to enable continuous flow processing.
