PIGNAT Mini Chemical Reactor Computerized – REA3000


SKU: REA3000 Category: Tags: ,


Provides a small volume reactor (1 liter) for studying chemical reactions with various parameters

Perform a reaction:

  • Controlling the temperature of the reaction mixture
  • Controlling the temperature of the heat transfer fluid
  • Influencing of stirring speed

Add reagent at the beginning or at a later stage

Reaction media

  • Homogeneous liquid
  • Gas-liquid heterogeneous

Proposed Experiments:

  • Perform organic synthesis (e.g. synthesis of aspirin)
    • Study the chemical reaction mechanism and reagent preparation
    • Adjust process parameters: temperature, stirring, reagent feed mode
    • Aspirin obtained in solvent phase
    • Controlled crystallization of aspirin
    • Isolate the product, calculate the yield and analyse the purity.
