Organic Synthesis in Microscale Without All the Expensive Glassware

  • Perform organic synthesis, refluxing, and distillation in microscale
  • Set is also reusable and contains enough hardware for one lab setup
  • Activity kits that can be used with the apparatus set are available separately
The Combo-Still™ offers an opportunity to demonstrate or teach organic chemistry in a new and inexpensive way. The inner glass vial contains the reactants and the outer glass vial is filled with silicone oil and is used as a heating bath. Very little heat is needed, and only 2-4 mL of reactant is necessary.

Ordering information: The apparatus includes an organic-resistant microplate, experiment stand, thermometer, two glass-bead packed columns (one for reflux, the other for distillation) and a vial of boiling chips. An instruction manual is also included.

Small, simple and works! - I bought a combostill at a teaching conference. It is small, quick to set up and works. A small alcohol microburner heats silicone oil in an outer vessel which heats an inner vessel that contains the liquid to be heated. Vapours are condensed in the side-arm which is filled with glass beads. A tiny alcohol thermometer can be fitted (0-50 deg C). Collection is typically into a small strip of wells.
