Wireless Polarimeter


SKU: PS-2235 Category: Tags: , ,



PASCO’s new Polarimeter has Bluetooth and USB connectivity, so it works on your iPad, Chromebook, Android device, and computers. It is ideal for introductory Organic and Biochemistry experiments with chiral compounds. Plane polarized light is passed through a sample which contains a chiral compound, to an analyzer and a detector. The degree of optical rotation of the plane polarized light is based on the type and amount of sample present. Determine the concentration of a sugar solution based on the optical rotation of plane polarized light.
