Sampling chemical reactions for offline analysis to determine reaction progress or impurity profiles is standard practice. However, the manual process is challenging when sampling air-sensitive reactions, reactions at elevated pressure, or from heterogeneous mixtures. Poor sampling reproducibility and delays in quenching can lead to variable results and inaccuracies in the analytical information gained. EasySampler was designed to eliminate these challenges, by providing an automated and robust inline method of taking representative samples from reactions.
Some Reactions are Difficult to Sample
Reliably taking representative samples of oxygen or moisture-sensitive reactions and reactions at elevated pressure or sub-ambient temperatures is virtually impossible. Highly toxic reactions present additional challenges. The unique patented EasySampler probe enables the capture and immediate quenching of reactions to provide a sample representative of a reaction at the time of sampling.
Sample and Quench at Reaction Conditions. How Does it Work?
EasySampler is immersed into a reaction, where it remains for the duration of the experiment. The sample pocket moves out and is filled with a sample. As the pocket withdraws, the sample is quenched immediately, at reaction conditions. The sample is then diluted to a user-specified concentration and ready for offline analysis.
