Rotary Evaporator Best Practices

Tips and tricks to optimize your rotary evaporation

by Lab Manager

Rotary evaporators are common laboratory instruments, found in virtually every organic laboratory, and are used to remove or isolate components of reaction mixtures based on differences in their boiling points. This is often done after a separation or extraction process. During rotary evaporation, the solvent is removed under vacuum and then trapped by the condenser and collected for reuse or disposal.

This best practices poster will show you how to: avoid bumping, thoroughly dry a sample, prevent implosion, manage dangerous solvents, and more.
