KNF’s RC900 Rotary Evaporator Proves Popular at Oxford

publication date: Dec 5, 2014
author/source: KNF Lab

Organic chemists at the University of Oxford are benefitting from the recent acquisition of an RC900 Rotary Evaporator from KNF Lab.

KNF RC900 Rotary

As one of the UK's premier academic centres for research into organic chemistry, the Chemistry Research Laboratory is engaged in a range of organic synthesis projects. Rotary evaporators are essential for this work, and the RC900 Rotary Evaporator, launched at Analytica in April this year, is a key addition to the laboratory. Charlotte Zammit, a D.Phil. student working in the laboratory’s Steve Davies Group, explained: “As a chemist involved in organic synthesis, I frequently use rotary evaporators. They are one of the most commonly used pieces of equipment in the laboratory, and are always in demand.”

“We have had the RC900 Rotary Evaporator for a few months now, and I find it really easy to use. The system is designed to make attaching and detaching the round bottom flask simple, with a clip-on facility to avoid putting any strain on the glassware. It also has a number of automatic features which are really useful; functions such as the pressure that have to be set manually on other systems can be set automatically for the RC900 when used in conjunction with the SC920 vacuum system, which is a nice touch. I am very pleased with it.”
